On our way to Santa Fe we stopped here for the view. It was a beautiful afternoon and the scenery was breathtaking. At first I hesitated to walk out but certainly don't regret getting up the courage to do so. You can feel the vibration when a big semi goes by. There were sellers at one end of the bridge... More

We had been before and it was worth the return visit. This bridge is purported to be the 7th highest bridge in the US over a rift valley caused by faulting and other earth movements when the North American and Pacific plates scraped against each other.

If you have never visited this part of the country before, you are in for a treat. Open spaces and scenic views galore. This is a photography buff's paradise. Don't forget to go back at sunset.

The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge offers great views of a deep-ish canyon. Though it is solid feeling and has substantial railing, most of our group did not feel like they needed to venture to the center of the span. They missed out on the view, and I had to take a selfie to show I was there. It's worth a... More

I loved the breath-taking view. It was so nice to park and take your time with just taking in the view and taking pictures.

Good view but surprised to see this rated higher than the Pueblo, which I would find much more interesting than scenery.

It's worth taking a side trip and visiting this natural wonder. From afar you can't even see the gorge! It looks like a flat grassland. So I can only imagine what the first settlers thought when they thought it was a smooth crossing across a great expanse of land only to find a gorge that is incredibly deep and wide.... More

Cool place to stop for a break. Beautiful views and you can actually walk out on the bridge and look into the gorge.
