Breathtaking views
Aug 2021
In anticipation of reaching the bridge I was expecting the span to be much longer. I loved that we could get out to walk the bridge and see the sights. Glad we stopped there

Stunning Bridge that's a Must Do in Taos
Sep 2021
The bridge is an engineering marvel and one that everyone should see and experience or themselves when visiting Taos. Plan on spending about an hour or so taking in the views and walking across the bridge which is both exhilarating and horrifying. Not only did we walk across the bridge but we were fortunate enough to observe big horn sheep hanging around one of the cliff's. Look for them on the shady side of the gorge.

It is definitely worth seeing and walking across the Bridge. Also, there are trails along the gorge with pretty sites for picture taking, or just plain walking. I even took pictures which I rarely do.

Wow Is all I Can Say
Sep 2021
Until now, I thought of Rio Grande as a John Wayne movie. Yet to walk along the bridge and glance downward at the gorge literally makes you gasp. While there is signage along the way explaining he geological history of the river and the gorge, seeing these upclose is an education and an inspiration. The bridge is easily accessible with ample parking. Don’t miss this opportunity.

Fantastic bridge to walk across and take many photos of the gorge. Truly a unique and worthwhile experience.

Nice stopover for photos
Aug 2021 • Couples
This was a good place to stopover and grab some photos of the gorge.

Wish there was perhaps an observation platform or other viewing facility to see into the gorge and the a better view of the bridge from the rest area.

The bridge was neat, though felt solemn and a little strange seeing the locks on the handrails, especially if you know their significance. Shakes a bit when cars travel by, so maybe not good for those with bridge or height phobias.

Compared to Grand Canyon or even Waimea Canyon, it is underwhelming
Aug 2021
I was looking forward with anticipation to visiting both the gorge and bridge. From afar, the bridge is a stand-out, but the gorge requires a closer inspection. There is a deep gorge carved by the Rio Grande River. However, there is very little water in the river. I've seen better for sure.
The bridge is a nice safe walk from the parking lot. It seems that if one wanted to jump over the low railing, it wouldn't be difficult.
I'll remember this locale where I lost the only prescription glasses I brought along for this trip. For the next 8 days, I could not read fine print and needed help.

Amazing View, but Not on a Windy Day
Aug 2021
Such a fantastic view, but walking out on the bridge on a day with high wind was scary. I could not let go of the railing, and I'm not usually afraid of heights. I'm glad I had the experience, but I would not do this again when the wind was blowing at least 40 mph. I felt like I might be blown into the road.

Incredible site
Aug 2021 • Family
An amazing sight so far off the beaten path. A short drive outside of Taos and well worth the time to drive out. The view of the bridge is incredible.
