“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

It is an amazing sight and not too far from Taos. There is bridge reconstruction with only one lane of traffic but that just provides more time to view the site.

“Breathtaking views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

If you get a chance try to visit this bridge spanning the Rio Grande river, It is a 700 foot drop down to the valley floor and you can park at the beginning of the bridge and walk out for a better view.

“Don't miss this...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Go. Be amazed. Be humbled. Be astounded. Some may have a difficult time walking across the bridge. Do not be deterred. Wait for your traveling companions on the 'other side' and soak in the scenery around you. Do not be fooled...it really is a gorge...

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

This is truly a sight to see. The only frustration was roadwork, but it wasn't too difficult. We walked to the middle of the bridge and took lots of sunset pictures.... breathtaking experience that should not be missed. Also, the vendors on the side of the road are truly talented artisans. Buy something and support American made.
