The Gorge Bridge is definitely worth a quick stop. The views are awesome and intimidating. There was a herd of big horn sheep grazing nearby which also adds to the experience

If you happen to be in the vicinity you might as well make a quick stop here. There's a rest area on the west side for parking and you can take a short walk out to the center of the bridge and check out the...More

Nice vistas, but pretty boring actually. Clean restrooms were nice. But, if you are into big bridges, it's a good place.

Short visit with a nice bridge. You can feel the bridge moving if you stand at the middle. Caution: there are a lot of people smoking disgusting cigarettes on the side of the bridge (to sell you indian products).

If you are in Taos or surroundings, this place is a must. It does not take much time (20 minutes is enough) and its only 15 mts from the center of Taos.Great for photos.

The gorge itself is pretty impressive, but the bridge and the opportunities for sight seeing are underwhelming.

Windy overpass highlighting a large slit in the gorge. No great marvel of the world. Would not go out of my way to visit again

Never realized Rio Grande went this far north . Gorge is breathtaking and awsome and not for the height nervous

The view from the bridge is breathtaking. So glad we took the extra few minutes to stop and enjoy this site. Had opportunities to purchase items from the Native Americans near the bridge but were not made to feel pressured.

How easy could an 80 year old man go down into the george. And, do I need tickets to go down into the george

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.

Do you need tickets to walk across the bridge?

No There is no cost of any kind unless you choose to buy something from some of the local vendors that set up portable booths near the bridge. Nice little rest stop on the West end which is where most of the photos are... More

Don't know about the Hot Springs. Hopefully someone else can answer that part. But if you stop at the Rest Station next to the bridge, there is a marked hiking trail. Bring water no matter what time of year. It is an easy... More
