Beautiful and scenic bridge. What was cool is that when we arrived there a group of classic car bluffs drove up so the trip there also became a car show. There are also a lot of people selling stuff.

We visited the bridge because of TripAdvisor's list and reviews without much expectation. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip. It is spectacular. We spent a lot of time on the bridge and at the near-by rest area, enjoying the scenery, and had a hard time leaving...!!!

We were there when the water level was very low. A gorge with a small stream. The walk out on the bridge was very windy. The vendors along the highway did not impress me....it was not quality wares, more like a flea market. I would not drive back out to see it again, too many other beautiful areas to visit.

We went to the side road at the Rio Grande Visitors Centre and drove up the dirt road and along the Gorge to get to the bridge. This route allows you to experience the Rio Grande up close and in its many shapes and sizes. Great drive!

High Bridge over the Rio Grande, what more do I need to say. Easy to walk across. Good parking. Some sheep grazing beside the bridge. Small park for a picnic lunch just on the cliff beside the bridge. Some vendors selling coffee and the like. Enjoyable.

Interesting bridge over a very wide gorge. A nice scene, but really did not stand out for me. Similar views just driving around this wonderful area. If you are in the neighborhood - check it out, but don't plan a special trip

The views from this bridge will take your breath away. Mountains in the distance with puffy clouds above, the gorge with dramatic views right below your feet - just beautiful. There are vendors on one end of the bridge selling a variety of quirky items.

Short drive. Beautiful. Take a short hike away from the bridge. Worth the time and effort. Pack a little picnic basket and cooler. Camera a must!

While enjoying all the beautiful scenery New Mexico has to offer, include a brief but enjoyable stop at the gorge. We were there in October, I imagine that the spring run off would be quite a spectacular sight.

Not far outside of Taos and worth the stop. Beautiful views of the Rio Grande and stunning gorge and bridge. Great street side jewelry artists with good prices compared to shops. Bought several things and had some good conversation. Bring cash if you want to partake. Also clean restrooms adjacent.
