The bridge is 15 minutes out of Taos-well worth the trip. Went at noon, thought the light would really show off the depth, cragginess of the canyon. Worked fairly well. Dawn/dusk would be interesting. Nice hiking trail, only went a mile or so, flat but...More

Dramatic views, photo opportunities, nice hiking/biking trails along rim. Opportunity to see Desert Bighorn Sheep. Just West of bridge is nice parking area, restrooms, picnic areas. Short drive West of Taos and Ski Area.

This was a real surprise. I thought the Rio Grande was small muddy stream, what a gorgeous river this is, what an amazing gorge. Nice rest area by the bridge, good launch point for a very nice hike - flat and scenic.

We visited the Gorge twice this week and were impressed both times. The view from the bridge and the adjacent rest area are worth the stop. We also took the hike along the West rim for about a mile, and the views along the way...More

If you're in or around Taos this is worth driving to, the view is beautiful. I don't know if it's always like this but the day we were there, in the afternoon, it was REALLY windy, and got even windier when you walked out to...More

Rode up from Sante Fe following along the Rio Grande (Route 68) to Taos by motorcycle. This was a worthy trip to see the bridge over this gorge! You certainly get the best view of the gorge from the bridge!

A deep trench in a large plains. Very beautiful. Bridge is nice but seems like a place for people to collect that are having emotional disorders. Many efforts to help people but more may be needed.

This was one of the most spectacular views I've ever seen. Drive over the bridge and then get out and view from the look out points!!

Great view. We did not walk across bridge to look out. The older we get the more we have trouble with heights. Others who do not have this problem should definitely view gorge from look out perch on bridge.

We stopped here on our first day and didn't know exactly what to expect. It's a short walk from one end to the other but the views on both sides are fabulous. Once over the bridge there were quite a few stalls set up selling...More

Yes you do not pay to view the bridge. I agree that I would have your dog on a leash because cars zoom by while you are walking on a narrow sidewalk.

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.
