The view from atop of the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge is excellent, with a few observation points on each side designed for easy photos. Look on both sides of the bridge, as the view of the gorge is different on each side. Free parking is available within walking distance, just west of the bridge. Walking across the bridge can be...

Just pull off the side of the road and view. You can walk across the bridge and view the gorge and the surrounding high dessert landscape. Local craft vendor sometimes on site.. Very beautiful experience of nature.

A must do. Amazing views. Scary but fun. The observation point is amazing. Make sure and stay at the Old Taos Guesthouse while in town.

We were recommended this attraction by friends. While traveling to visit it seems like you are in the middle of nowhere but suddenly this gorge appears in the middle of a vast plain.There is a bit of a craft fair feel to one side of the bridge as there are locals selling leather goods and jewelry, and even sometimes singers...

This is absolutely beautiful. And you can walk a trail that runs along the gorge. But be careful because you can walk right to the edge.

On the way to Taos Ski Valley we stopped on the over look on the Rio Grande gorge. It is very high over the water, enough to give my son vertigo. There were a few native America arts dealers on the side of the road, from which we purchases some pottery and struck up a conversation.

This is worth seeing. Great views. We had just rafted underneath the day before so it was nice to get a different view.

Was recommended to visit on a full moon night by my hotel, it is amazing and the only issue was my pictures wouldn't come out. Very cool to see what looks like a river of light.
