It is a beautiful stop and an awesome picture opportunity. There is even a rest area across the street with some vendors, restrooms and pavilions you can stop to eat lunch at. The rest area also has an amazing view where you can see the entire side of the bridge. Take a walk along the bridge and enjoy the view of the mountains and surrounding scenery. It was very peaceful.

If you are visiting Taos, go and visit the bridge. It is a short drive. The area is great for photos, a walk and using the restrooms. The restrooms are minimal, but clean.

The bridge is spectacular and an engineering wonder. We were able to park along side the road and walk out onto the bridge. Traffic on the bridge was slow enabling us to focus on the view, not the traffic. The bridge is over 500 ft. above the river offering a fabulous view of the geological rock formations.
