The Bridge itself is an architectural marvel, and adjacent to a state park. Walk along the Gorge. Beautiful views in all directions.

Beautiful scenery and views from this bridge. You can leave your car and walk across for some great views of the Rio Grande

Not the greatest tourist experience. The view is fantastic and the bridge is amazing. But the road-side tourist stop is a bit third-world. Walking along the bridge is exciting, but running across traffic isn't. It's as if the tourist attraction to this bridge was an...More

The Rio Grande bridge is an easy drive out of Taos. It is worth a visit. The views of the river and surrounding area are very good.

Just a short drive from Taos and definitely worth the 15 minute stop to take a walk over the bridge.

Drove from Pilar along the river, over this bridge where fishermen were doing their thing, then up the west bank to La vista verde trail head for a 2.6 Mile there and back walk with splendid views down to the gorge

Wow! What a view. Something to see at least once! Well worth the short trek outside of Taos. You won’t be sorry.

#1 tourist attraction for our visitors. The view from the bridge is spectacular. The Rio Grande River lies way below in a rift. There is a visitor's center on the west side with good parking. This area is full of wildlife. You might see elk,...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.
