Incredible historical site only open 2 days a year
5.0 de 5 burbujasoct de 2019
Nuestro grupo de historia había acordado previamente visitar el Sitio Trinity con anticipación, por lo que nos aseguraríamos de estar en el área el día que estaba abierto. Solo está abierto 2 días al año: el primer sábado de abril y el primer sábado de octubre, así que asegúrese de planificar en consecuencia. El sitio NO está en Albuquerque, así que no dejes que la lista de TripAdvisor te engañe. En realidad, se encuentra en el White Sands Missile Range, que es un sitio activo de prueba de misiles del Ejército de los EE. UU. Por lo tanto, para poder visitarlo, deberá tener una identificación con foto, como una licencia de conducir válida o un pasaporte. Prepárese para esperar un momento en su vehículo para ingresar a los terrenos, ya que habrá muchas personas allí y la seguridad demorará en verificar a todas las personas y vehículos que ingresan. Una vez que ingrese al sitio, estacionará su vehículo e ingresará al área original donde detonó la primera bomba atómica. Se trata de una caminata de 1/4 o más desde el estacionamiento, así que prepárate para esto también. Si no puede caminar tan lejos, tienen un carrito de golf que lo puede llevar, pero cuando estuvimos allí, solo había uno o dos en funcionamiento, por lo que es posible que tenga que esperar un tiempo para sentarse. Cuando llegas al sitio principal, hay un monumento y algunos marcadores que describen lo que sucedió. También tienen una réplica de lo que estaba encerrada la bomba antes de la detonación, así como algunos otros elementos de interés asociados con ella. Desde el estacionamiento, puede viajar en un autobús de enlace (viejo autobús escolar reformado, esto es el ejército después de todo) hasta la granja original de McDonald donde investigaron y armaron la bomba, etc. Hay algunas pantallas alrededor y dentro del propiedad y puede recorrer la granja original donde le mostrarán dónde guardaban las cosas los físicos y otros. Algunos de nosotros tuvimos una pequeña bonificación mientras recorríamos el sitio original de detonación de la bomba. Hay algo de personal del Ejército en el sitio, por supuesto. Notamos a un hombre con la insignia de un coronel en su uniforme. ¡Subimos para hablar con él y descubrimos que era el comandante de la base de White Sands Missile Range! Él solo estaba caminando hablando con la gente en el sitio. No muchos sabían quién era. Acababa de asumir el mando unos meses antes. Era un caballero muy agradable y disfrutamos nuestra conversación con él. Nuevamente, vale la pena visitarlo si se encuentra en el área en uno de esos dos días y si tiene algún interés en la historia de Estados Unidos.

Wow. A truly historic site that is must see. Waiting in the middle of the New Mexico desert with hundreds of others, watching the sun rise whilst waiting to enter was magical. If you’re not a US/Canadian citizen, expect a few questions at the gate upon entry - but the security staff were efficient and friendly.

This site is open 2 days a year. We did not plan to attend but thought we are in the area. Let’s go. With the popularity of Oppenheimer…. The line to get in was over 5 miles long. Outside the site was peaceful protesters called the “down winders”. I spoke w one man and he has 5 generations of cancer. Sobering

This was a must visit for me to see the site of the world's first atomic bomb test. Trinity Site is located on the White Sands Missle Range and is only open 2 times a year to the general public. There is an obelisk at ground zero along with historical pictures around the fence. Shuttle busses take you to the Mcdonald ranch house where Oppenheimer and other observers watched the test.

This is open TWO DAYS PER YEAR!!! It is within the impact zone of missile tests from White Sands Missile Range. FURTHERMORE, due to the popularity of the movie Oppenheimer, it is expected to be MORE CROWDED than usual. Since ONLY 125 vehicles are permitted in the caravan to the Trinity Site, chances of admission look almost nonexistent.
So, if you MUST see it, plan to camp out before April 6 or October 21 to assure yourself a chance of admission. Meanwhile, I will go see Hoover Dam or the Grand Canyon. At least I can get in!

Waste if time to go here. Its only open for 2 days a year and its crowded because of this. It’s ridiculous how the govt is at managing parks and historical sites. I trued visiting Geronimo’s grave in oklahomo and wasn’t able to. These sites are restricted and its a shame how the govt acts like its “open to visit” but in reality it isnt. Dont waste your time and money going to these locations, I still am irritated at how misleading the information on these locations is.

Twice a year WSMR opens its doors to the Trinity site. The Army soldiers and volunteers did an excellent job of directing folks to the site and parking. We had no problem entering the Stallion gate. The site is historic and accompanied by many interesting exhibits.

The gate opens at 8 AM. I got there at 5 AM and was the second car in line. (Another year, someone said they arrived at 4 to be near the start.) Unless you're absolutely allergic to getting up early one morning, you'll get a lot by doing that! First, you go through the gate immediately, which saves a long wait inching ahead behind hundreds of other cars. Another visitor and I walked quickly along the road to see the obelisk marking the spot... we were the first there and were able to take overall photos of the obelisk and the whole area before other people came and insisted on standing in front of the obelisk to snap photos of themselves. (Go to McDonald Ranch afterward.) Don't miss the unmarked spot next to the obelisk, about one yard/meter in size... it has remnants of a couple of the rods from the original tower.

Although TripAdvisor lists this as being in Alamogordo, NM, it's actually a drive of a bit more than 100 miles. (Currently Google Maps marks the turnoff from US highway 380 as "Stallion Range Center Access." The actual gate is five miles south of there in NM highway 525.) There's a caravan that leaves Alamogordo and drives more directly to Trinity Site through a different gate, but it's limited to the first 125 cars. It arrives around 10:30 and brings a huge flood of visitors... another reason to come early!

I spent the night before in Carrizozo, which is exactly 53 miles east of the turnoff to NM-525. Lodging isn't fancy, but the town has a fun downtown street with old buildings, a bunch of painted burros in some surprising places, and New Mexico's largest photo gallery.

I have been drawn to visiting the Trinity Site for many years and finally by coincidence planned a New Mexico RV wander tour that incorporated one of the 2 days a year the White Sands Missile Range holds an open house. This year (2022) the October date was 10/15, 2 weeks later than usual. Check the Army's Trinity Site website for up to date schedules.

First, unlike all other traveler recommendations, DON'T get there early and line up behind hundreds of other vehicles (this assumes you are driving from the north Stallion Gate). There is absolutely NO benefit to early arrival! We arrived at 11:00 with no traffic whatsoever and the guard confirmed this was by far the best time to get there. The guard did a quick check of our IDs (we both have AZ Real ID licenses) and waved us through. No dogs, no search, no masks, no vax card check, not even military police (gate was guarded by a private company). There were MPs at the parking area directing traffic.

The gate is open until 2:00 PM, last bus to McDonald Ranch house is at 2:30 and the site closes at 3:30 PM, so 11:00 at the gate is plenty of time to see the little that remains. We got a parking spot right next to the entrance as there were hundreds of open spots by that time. The Alamogordo caravan and big tour buses all clear out by 12:30 and after that you'll have a chance of not having hundreds of others in your obligatory picture of the obelisk & plaque.

All politics aside, my wife & I found the site to be quite a downer. When I walked around the back of the obelisk that marks Ground Zero of the first test of the most destructive weapon ever created by humankind I found myself in tears as I sent out a prayer to the Universe that we never have cause to unleash its power ever again. All around us, people were saying how "cool" it was to be there. We disagree as there's nothing cool about the death of hundreds of thousands of people and the potential to wipe humanity from the face of the Earth. The book "Hiroshima" should be obligatory reading for everyone.

If such things interest you, you can learn a lot more about the Manhattan project and the history & development of nuclear weaponry online or someplace like the Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas than you possibly can at Trinity Site, so if you're a history buff, visiting the site will add little to your knowledge. If you just HAVE to stand on Ground Zero for a selfie...well, this is the place.

I could go on but suffice it to say that for us, this was a "One & Done" experience.

The Trinity site is a great “one or two” times should be sufficient to get an understanding of the site! I would recommend a tour from a museum that works the history of such sites. Some of the items are still around, however time, weather is taking its toll. I find the history very interesting at every level.
