So glad we took the time to check out the gorge! The bridge in itself is a marvel, but the view beneath is spectacular! An amazing natural sight that you have to see if you find yourself in Taos! We were on a motorcycle, but there were plenty of places for cars to park next to the bridge to hop out for a look.

My sister and I walked about 2 miles along the gorge on the West Rim Trail. It was a beautiful, yet quiet, walk. There were a lot of rocks so I wouldn't recommend a stroller or small children. There are no fences along the gorge either so hikers should be aware of that before bringing young daredevils along for the trip. The view was great. The trail was clean. The facilities were well maintained.

As you walk across a bridge that towers over the deep gorge with a beautiful river flowing through it, a great attraction for all ages. A great destination after eating a pallet pleasing meal at Orlando's off El Prado.

Enjoyed a fabulous 2-day outing on the Rio Grande with NMRA. One day white water rafting and one day paddle boarding. Both completely different from each other and both fullfilling in adventure. Great food and service from this outfit. Super guides.

We tried the new company in town, New Mexico River Adventures, and though they are new, they are super experienced and have it down pat! From a nice new office with excellent facilities where you have orientation, to the actual raft trip with a fun, experienced and personable guide, to the tasty lunch - can't wait to go back next summer!
