This is a Taos must see. As many times as I visit Taos I never tire of visiting the Gorge. You can park along the road or in the nearby rest area. The view changes during the day because the light changes. There are many local vendors that set up shop next to the bridge. You can often see big... More

The bridge is about 7 miles outside of Taos. It's amazing to see how the Rio Grande eroded the rock over the centuries. What is most interesting is the remains of a car that failed to jump from one side to the other. It is implanted in the wall of Gorge.

Coming from Santa Fe, stop at the Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center - very helpful staff. Take the extra time to drive along NM 570 - mostly a gravel/dirt road along the river bed.

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.
