Despite loving adventure activities like skydiving, standing on a narrow sidewalk in the middle of this bridge 600+ feet above the river took my breath away! As trucks drove along the bridge, we could feel it bounce and move under our feet as the wind of them passing made us feel as if the icy cement is a little too... More

The bridge was cool. Very high. If you are scared of heights then you can chill at the park that's beside the bridge. There are local artists that sell good they have made beside the bridge. People just park and walk across. Free fun.

Being from the east coast, the Rio Grande River never registered as one of this country's nature beauty until we stop at the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. We observed the flowing river with it's deep gorges . Truly a picturesque moment, we were able to capture in pictures. Stops like these makes you appreciate the natural beauty's this country offers.

I made the long drive from Sante Fe to Taos for the scenery & to visit the bridge. Even though the ride was long, it was well worth it. You can't actually see the bridge unless you walk back onto the grass, but the view of the mountains and the river below was beautiful and peaceful.

Worth a quick trip not far outside Taos, but if it was much further away, it would probably not be the best way to spend time in the area.

The view if the gorge is breath taking. The walk along the rim is a nice easy hike and offers a nice look at the gorge and surrounding landscape. The trail is flat and very child and pet friendly.

Must see actually breathtaking. Short drive west of town. Best to park on west side and walk onto the bridge. There are restroom at the rest stop on the west side of the bridge. But best to park off the road instead of the rest stop as there is no path from the rest stop to the bridge.

My son and I walked to the center of the bridge. The views were stunning, especially since we were there over Christmas and snow had just fallen. This stop was my son's choice, and I am happy he brought me here.

If u are in Taos NM, u have to make ur way to the Rio Grand Gorge. Breath taking views. My teenage children loved it. Was a little scary if a vehicle goes on bridge it does shake a little but soooo worth it. We even saw fish in the water below, so Amazing what a site

The view of Rio Grande from White Rock overlook is more spectacular so I was disappointed. But it IS the RIo Grande after all
