If you find yourself anywhere near Taos Valley or Northern New Mexico, the Gorge Bridge is a must see! The attraction is free and you can actually walk out on the bridge. The view of the Rio Grande from above is amazing as well as the spectacular vistas of the Sangre De Cristos mountain range from south of Taos all... More

Other than a view of Rio Grand River this is just a bridge. There is parking and souvenir vendors at one end. We parked and walked both sides. There are initialed locks along the rails noting that people have visited. Note-pay attention when walking as cars are speeding very close!

Very cool site to go see, no need to spend a lot of time there, but well worth the time that we did spend.

Not for the faint of heart, but a very short 7 mile drive west of Taos and well worth the trip. Great photo op.

This place was magical! I wanted to get some good sunset pictures that overlooked the gorge and I did! The entire place was serene and the wind felt amazing! My friend and I stood in the middle of the bridge as the sun was setting and looked at the changing colors from the gorge to the mountains in the distance.... More

Park on either side of Rio Grande High Bridge and walk across peering down into the gorge! Note the herds of Desert Bighorn Sheep on either side back from nearly being shot out 20 years ago!

Traveling from Ojo Caliente to Taos. Historical marker and small overlook park. If you've never seen the Grand Canyon this very neat .

This is one of the places I always take out of town guests, it is grand beauty at its best! The vendors along the road are fun and you never know what treasures you might find. If you want to really knock your socks off, travel a little further west, take the road to Pilar and decend to the bottom... More

This bridge is only a few miles from Taos and appears out of nowhere as you travel across the rather flat desert. The bridge itself is similar to the royal gorge. An engineering feat over a river about 700 feet below in a canyon. Seeing the bridge itself is worth the trip. The visitor center has the cleanest and accessible... More

I was amazed at the depth and beauty of this gorge, New Mexico's portion of the Grand Canyon. The rest area and hiking trails were well maintained and it was so exciting to walk to one of several overlooks on the huge bridge. Take a picnic lunch and spend some time there. We were there on the weekend and there... More
