Great view but with cool warning

A bridge over a really deep gorge, but at each viewing station which are cantilevered out over nothing there is a red button to call a local suicide line. Never seen that before.

Beautiful bridge with awesome views and sights. Park on the west side and visit the local vendors' tables for handmade goodies to take home for family and friends. Most days you'll find an brightly painting & decorated school bus serving ice cream and other great treats. Bathrooms are nearby at the visitor area. Just south of the bathrooms is a... More

We enjoyed the stunning view of the Rio Grande from the bridge (US 64). To capture a great photo of the bridge, need to go to the nearby rest area. Better time is sunset or overcast day. We went in a morning and we could see, lot of cute bunnies around the rest area.

looking down for over 600 feet into the gorge is breathtaking. walking the bridge is a easy trip and there are parking areas on either end, but the western part is more desirable.

As an engineer and lover of natural beauty, the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge fascinated me. We drove the 10 miles out to the gorge and bridge while on a day trip to Taos from Santa Fe. The gorge is a 50-mile gorge cut through the black basalt flows of the Taos Plateau volcanic field. It is some 800 feet below... More

Full disclosure - I am "heights challenged" so my review is from several brief glimpses through my fingers while crossing the bridge and longer views from the sides but well back from the guard rails. That said, the Gorge Bridge offers breathtaking views of the Rio Grande and the steep, craggy walls it has sculpted over the millennia. The desert... More

This is an amazing bridge with amazing views. It sneaks up on you. Leaving Taos, the land is flat. You look for the bridge see nothing as you are looking for a grand, soaring, George Washington bridge. Then, suddenly you are there. All you see is a roadway, as all the magnificent structure is "hidden" underneath. Pull over, get out... More

Great water flow this year. Lots of opportunity for fishing and rafting. The beauty of the Gorge during the day, morning and sunset is excellent.

Just a fun stop. Great view and facilities available. Fun to see vendors selling their wares alongside the road.

Our family stopped here for a quick visit after dinner in Taos. My kids were amazed at the beauty of it (they've never seen the Grand Canyon :) Since we went in the evening, there were no vendors (or bathrooms) open.
