Right at the Slide Trail Trailhead is an amazing view of the Rio Pueblo. Leaving the parking lot, make sure to hit the new section of trail, aptly name 'New Trail'. Eventually the views expand to include the Taos Junction Bridge at the confluence of the Rio Pueblo + the Rio Grande. There's always a chance to take in some Big Horn Sheep along the way from one of the many viewpoints along the gorge. After 4 miles, the trail intersects w the Klauer trail. This is a good turning around point. Heading back to the start, the trail takes on a whole new perspective and many more amazing views.
