Stunningly beautiful.

You should not miss this. You can walk across the bridge and look down into the gorge. Sunset is a great time to visit.

Touristas all along the bridge. Indian jewelry sellers at the parking lot. A short 10 mile drive from Taos. Not a bucket list must.

Very unique and lovely place. Worth the stop or drive on out from Taos! It's best if you park on the west end.

Just a short ride outside Taos- worth the ride over there. We were both taken by the stunning view of the bridge and the depth of the rio grande river valley.

Close to Taos and well worth the time! We had no idea the gorge was so deep and dramatic. Their are even a couple of vendors set up on one end of the bridge to sell you trinkets.

We stopped here after eating lunch at Common Fire (about 8 miles east), and were rewarded with the site of a white ram scrambling ably along the gorge ledges below us on its way home. Great views both ways--maybe better seen before 3:30 pm, since the November sun was quite low in the sky, and the gorge was in shadow.

I've been rafting on the Rio Grand in Big Bend National Park so it was interesting to see the gorge in Northern New Mexico. Highway 64 goes right over the gorge and with its sidewalk, you can go out over the gorge and great a great photo. You are way up there so be careful if you have height problems.

Stopped after visiting Taos Pueblo. Very interesting geologically and we even saw mountain hosts in the distance!

Driving out towards the Gorge the countryside looks like flat desert country. Then all of sudden you arrive at the bridge and look over to see the amazing Gorge. Walk across the bridge for the best view and browse the vendors along the roadside for all sorts of jewelry and craft items. Next you need to drive into the park... More
