  • We went fairly early in the morning. There were few people and little traffic on the bridge. It was beautiful and my kid's had fun running across it and looking over the edge and trying to make echoes. A must-visit in Taos.
  • Will scare you and you will love it. It will show you the power of the world and please hold on to your kids and have fun.... Thanks
  • Amazing views. There is a caravan of suvenior sells on one side of the bridge. Make sure you both walk across and stop at the rest area. From the rest area you can see the bridge and gorge from the side. There are facilities at the rest stop.
  • Although there isn't a ton to "do" here, unless you walk the rim trail, this is a gorgeous site to see. It's fun to walk on the bridge and feel it shake as the large trucks drive by. There are small vendors and an ice cream bus to enjoy, as well. Make the short trip from town, take some pictures, and enjoy the beauty of the Rio Grande Gorge.
  • I liked the souvenir sellers and the ppl were very cool. Clean restrooms were always appreciated
