Down county (?) road B-006 (Acequia Madre del Llano Rd), the road turns gravel. Turn right on B-007 and it begins a steep decline into the Rio Grande valley. The river is crossed on the one-lane John Dunn bridge. Probably best avoided on rainy/snowy days....More

If you're afraid of heights, I wouldn't recommend walking the bridge. But visiting the location is a must if you're in the area. The gorge is quite something and can best be seen from the bridge.

The bridge is less impressive than the surroundings, but it's a pretty byway to get to the bottom of Rio Grande, via a descent path, to a hot spring - a hole in a recess. I heard it's only warm inside the spot. I didn't...More

Not much to say, it's a bridge with cool views and a hot spring in the general area that you can walk down to. Saw a few people fishing in the area, so I assume it is a decent spot for that

Good fishing. Good beach across the bridge, good hot springs across the bridge. It is a very special spot in Taos County. Follow NM 522 to B-007 turn left and follow the signs.
