While driving out to the gorge, you would not expect to find what you find when you get there. It would appear that there is nothing to see until you reach the bridge and then WOW!!

This attraction is good, but not worth going very many miles out of your way. Good, if you have never seen a gorge!

The hotel has an amazing atmosphere and very polite staff. The bartenders and the enterteiner are easy-going and quite talkative. The food could be better. The pool is not so big but I enjoy swimming

Beautiful way to see the rio grande river! (Not for those afraid of heights) family friendly but hold on to the little ones, small sidewalk and highway passing by. You can still see it very well from the picnic areas on the southwest side of...More

This is a neat spot with the Rio Grande far below. It is fun to walk across. When we visited, there were several Desert Bighorn rams wandering the area. It was pretty cool, but the rams could be a bit dangerous. Fortunately they weren't near...More

An engineering feat for sure, lets you know how big the world is and how small you are. It's about a 20 minute drive out of Taos and it's worth the time. Plenty of parking and there was some vendor s selling trinkets and stuff....More

Woke up to the owner of the ice cream bus telling me to get my RV out of there, since I am not a vendor. Sad, because of the number of my friends who have been murdered in this area. Please stay together and watch...More

Short drive from Taos. Definitely worth it. Amazing views. Not crowded. Rest stop was also clean if you wanted to have a picnic.

A short drive out of town. Walk across the bridge and view the gorge, go up to the visitors area and see the structure. We visited late afternoon, which turned out to be a good time for light and shadow.

Truly breathtaking view of the gorge and the Rio Grande! Will also probably see some of the rafters go through the rapids near the bridge. Fun!

How easy could an 80 year old man go down into the george. And, do I need tickets to go down into the george

I would suggest driving to the John Dunn bridge which is a few miles upstream and allows you to actually put your feet in the water without climbing down a trail. The drive is very bumpy, mostly gravel, but very beautiful.

Do you need tickets to walk across the bridge?

No There is no cost of any kind unless you choose to buy something from some of the local vendors that set up portable booths near the bridge. Nice little rest stop on the West end which is where most of the photos are... More

Don't know about the Hot Springs. Hopefully someone else can answer that part. But if you stop at the Rest Station next to the bridge, there is a marked hiking trail. Bring water no matter what time of year. It is an easy... More
