“The remains of the cold war”

**This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner.** The Martin Marietta SM-68A/HGM-25A Titan I was the United States' first multistage Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). Incorporating the latest design technology when designed and manufactured, the Titan I provided an additional nuclear deterrent to complement the U.S. Air Force's SM-65 Atlas missile. It was the first in a series of Titan rockets, but was unique among them in that it used LOX and RP-1 as propellants, while the later Titan versions all used storeable fuels instead. Though the SM-68A was operational for only three years, it was an important step in building the Air Force's strategic nuclear forces. HGM-25A Titan I ICBM 1961–1965 Operated three missile sites: (1 August 1960-25 June 1965) 725-A, 14 miles SE of Watkins, Colorado 39°35′15″N 104°27′42″W 725-B, 4 miles NNE of Deer Trail, Colorado 39°40′06″N 104°01′41″W 725-C, 5 miles SSE of Elisabeth, Colorado 39°18′54″N 104°33′43″W

Stay away, Enjoy the pictures but do not make the mistake My friends and i did. We and everyone else caught on the land will be criminally prosecuted. The dangers underground are assumed to just be asbestos but theres no telling the structural integrity of the silo and if any other chemicals are present. The ladder is bound to give at some point soon. Please do yourself the favor and stay away. You will be prosecuted

Don't go there anymore. The land owners there called the cops on my and my buddies and we all got nabbed for trespassing. We parked behind the hills, and made sure to stay away from view of all the houses. They must drive around and patrol, because there's absolutely no way they could have seen us from their houses. It's an interesting place, but it's just the shell of what it used to be. It's completely empty inside, besides lots of garbage, beer cans, and shotgun shells. It would have been much cooler to see it with the equipment still inside. Some of it is completely unreachable due to massive flooding inside the complex

If you go at night, make sure you don't have any lights on. The property owner will come in his serial killer truck. Hell, all of us had a "get the hell out" feeling and not more than ten minutes after leaving, the property owner drove to the entrance. From what I've heard he probably might kill someone, and since he has silos he can hide the body in, why not?

Just be stealthy

This was the home of the United States' first multistage Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM). The Titan I was intended to serve as a deterrent, and complement the USAF's SM-65 Atlas missile.

Don't go. We were there and tried to get in around the grate. It's a good thing we couldn't because as we were leaving we saw the crazy farmer coming in his truck. We got out of there just in time.

Don't get me wrong: the place is amazing. If you're looking for good urban exploration, this is it. BUT it's not worth it! My buddies and I went there (today) for a few hours and got caught. You cannot park your car anywhere that they won't look. When we finally left, we were greeted by a police officer and charged with class 2 tresspassing. Now I've got to go to court and pay a big fine. And the misdemeanor on my record NEVER goes away! Very fun, but so not worth it.

Does anyone have the land owners Name, number, or any type of information? I would like to contact him/her as a team and I are trying to do a documentary on this particular place. Our job or past jobs in the military have been Chem or Nuclear related and found this place to be very intriguing. Any information would be very helpful!

I visited in March of 2015. This place is amazing. You will definitely need to bring a breathing mask, as the air is full of dust and probably asbestos. Wear sturdy shoes and bring a strong flashlight and headlamp, or several. It is very dark down there. Be aware that there are many places where you could easily fall and severely injure yourself, so be careful. There is standing water in a lot of places too. For more info, check out an article I wrote about my visit: http://www.placesthatwere.com/2016/01/huge-abandoned-titan-i-icbm-nuclear.html
