Access Tunnel at Deer Trail Titan Base
Titan bases contain over 2,500 feet of underground passages, built to withstand a nuclear attack as close as 3,000 feet away (photo copyright Jon Haeber).

Over 1/2-mile of underground passageways; three 150-foot-deep launch silos; PCBs, lead paint, zinc, cadmium, mercury — it’s a toxic soup, stagnant for over 40 years.

In 1962, these gigantic underground complexes began to take shape. Menacing images of power domes 150 feet across and two stories high put anyone lucky enough to see these underground cities in awe. They were said to support a 150-man army for 30 days. They could withstand a nuclear blast from less than 3,000 feet away.

And today, frozen icicles of contaminated groundwater hang from its rusticated quonset-hut-like ceilings. Breathing the air inside of a Titan base is not recommended. One breath will make you wonder how anything could survive within it.

The U.S. had 54 of these silos dotting the Midwest and West Coast. From Beale A.F.B in California to Lowry A.F.B. outside of Denver, CO these places were once the bargaining chips in a Cold War standoff with the Soviet Union. These were missiles that could travel across the upper atmosphere at speeds 25 times the speed of sound. They could hit targets over 6,000 miles away and deploy a 4 megaton nuclear warhead, a yield of destructive force that is theoretically 200 times the 20 Kt bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

Today, only an empty shell remains. Some are filled in with water, others turned into tourist destinations; and still others on the market as potential “wine cellars or underground rock climbing gyms”

There’s one thing this author knows: Walking through an abandoned Titan missile base is a life-altering experience. Straddling the precarious catwalks and 2,500 feet of underground passages, looking down into the abyss of the 155-foot launch silo, and donning a P95 respirator to protect yourself from the toxic fumes — all of it makes you feel as if you’re walking in an alien environment and that you’re one of the few lucky people to have seen this modern wonder. At one time, these places were the landmark sites of the U.S. military industrial complex. Today, they only represent the incredible amount of money spent (wasted?) on the U.S. war machine.

    Only the silo floods, Josh. The rest of it is high and dry — for the most part :-)

    I worked for RCA Service Co at the Lincoln Ca site as an electrician.I ran the Nordberg diesel generators during construction and turnup. I have a picture of the powerhouse taken during those times. The movie, A Gathering of Eagles with Rock Hudson was filmed at this site. A few years later, about 1966, I got to tour the Live Oak site after it’s shutdown. They were awesome places.

  6. Peter Hymans on said:

    Is the Live Oak site the one at the north end of the Sutter Buttes, near Gridley?
    If yes, is it flooded or are the tunnels open?
    Email me at Peteemail@aol.com, Thanks

  7. Jonathan Haeber on said:

    Hi Peter,
    You’re correct. The live oak site is near the Sutter Buttes, but there are a half dozen or so other sites in California, and as of today, none of these sites are physically accessible without trespassing (the live oak site is also locked up tight and closely watched). Most of the other sites are essentially inaccessible because they’re on an active military base. Chico has a house right next to it and Lincoln is flooded.

    Check google .earth or maps in the north end of the sutter buttes.I have looked over alot of titan sites.this one is different,looks like they quit using it a few years ago.check it out even the H on the helipad looks pretty fresh,and I noticed this one has a air srip just to the right of the site.Just long enough for a jet to escape? there seems to be a trail from the end of the strip to the old guard entrance,check it out tell me what you think,kevin

  15. How did you get into this base. From what Ive heard all the old Beale silos are impossible to get into. I would give just about anything to crawl around in that base.

  18. I am one of the lucky ones to have trespassed my way into the Sutter Buttes site….. TWICE. The first time in about 1991, and the second about a year or so later. Both times we went in through an air shaft which had the steel grate pulled up enough on one side to squeeze through and get on the ladder built into the side of the shaft. In was easy— getting out, not so easy.

    The second trip in, we spent a good 4 or 5 hours down there exploring everything we could get to. No masks, no protective clothing, no gloves, no nothing but flashlights….. and I’m still here to tell the story. That was almost 20 years ago and I still talk about it to this day, frozen in my mind like it was last week. I wish I had taken some sort of keepsake, but I didn’t. I was young and figured I’d be back again, but never did. We had to park about a mile walk away, and both times we went at night. Through an orchard, over a wire fence, through a cow pasture, up a hill, down a hill, through some bushes and blam, you’re there. I could still drive right to it if I had to, but as I understand, times are different now. There is a house built very nearby and they keep a close watch, ready to call the cops.

    It was an experience to remember, but unfortunately, one my kids will never get to see.

    I was an instructor for the Nuclear Weapons Course at Lowry AFB, CO. I had a map showing all of the Titan sites around Lowry. Several of us visited the Deer Trail site in 1982. We wandered around inside for about an hour. It had been used for parties and had been stripped of anything that looked important. We decided to leave when one of us fell 3 feet through a loose tile in the elevated floor of the control room. The silo had at least 20 feet of water in it. I loaned that map to someone and never got it back. I still have a map of all of the Atlas sites of F. E. Warren AFB in WY.

  20. Doug Beaumont on said:

    I was at CSU Chico in the 1990′s when the base was still a big deal. But the year I moved there someone got hurt and so they welded the entrances shut. Some friends climbed down one of the 160′ shafts using just the debris that had been thrown in there. I was not brave/stupid enough to follow them. It was an amazing place though, even during the day. Sometime in the late 90′s the base was sold and now it’s all cleaned up and there is a house on it.

    If you want to see the property, use Google Earth (39 49′ N, 121 51′ W), or look up “Missile Rose Rd. Chico CA” on Google Maps.

  21. Wes Nelson on said:

    I was on a Titan I launch crew, 725th Strategic Missile Squadron, 451st Strategic Missile Wing, Lowry AFB, Colorado. Site 5A was my “home” site, although we sometimes filled in at other sites. My job was the crew BMMT – Ballistic Missile Maintenance Techincian.
    I was there when the first site went active and there when the last one was deactivated.
    I spent many a twenty four hour shift underground.
    Many fond and many not so fond memories.

  22. Kyle on said:

    Some friends and me went and snooped around the Deer trail base (2B) just last night. Pretty cool experience, my cousin actually owns the land that it sits on. I would like to see pics of how it looked before it was deactivated. Its pretty well trashed from partiers and people just looking to wreck something. I’d also like to see a map of how its layed out, We saw all three silos, one was completely full of water to the entrance and the other two who knows how much water was in them, I’d say it was 60 to 70 feet down to the water. We didnt get to see all of it, as a couple of the ppl we went with were ready to go.

  23. Robert F Walker on said:

    Like Wes Nelson I Was on a launch crew at Site 1A with 451st SMW (Strategic Missile Wing) 724th SMS
    (Strategic Missile Squadron),Lowry AFB Col. My job was Titan Missile Facility Electrician,which involved The Site Maintenance Electrical. Duty was’nt Bad,24 Hour shift and 72 off. Living quarters
    were two men to a room (old officers quarters) one bathroom with shower between two rooms. Very nice. My worst memory was the day a 116 ton missile door fell on three civilian workers topside not very pretty. Period of duty about 1960 to Oct 1963. By the way Wes did’nt tell you he was allowed 6 hours sleep on his 24 hour duty day. The town was a great party town with lots of action most any night. I spent 4years and 9months and would probebly reenlisted except ther was no plans for any rate increases in the forseeable future. Oh well! By the way Wes I still have my old hard hat and several patches of the 451stSMS and724th SMS for keep sakes.

    I was in the AF 61-65 at Beale AFB,CA, 456 Civil Eng Sqdn, A part if our job was to provided Maintenance on the HVAC systems and related equipment on the three sites near Marysville, Yuba city, CA. there was one near Lincon, The buttes,and Chico. The sites were under construction when I reported to Beale in 61, They were completed and activated and were closed I believe in 63. I worked with contractors to receive orentation on the systems and we did maintenance after activation, there was chillers, cooling towers, pumps, AHUS, air compressors, controls and other associated systems. The Missile Sqdn. operated the systems.

  26. anonymous on said:

    I was thinking about sneaking my way to the one in the buttes but there are so many houses nearby its rather discouraging. You just know that if they see you driving down that road they’ll know exactly where you’re going, and if they see you walking through the hills behind it… they’ll know exactly where you’re going.

  27. Jeremy Stone on said:

    I’ve been in the market for a Titan site for some time, but sadly, it seems that all these sites have been neglected to such an extent as to make them completely useless. I’d love any information on available sites that aren’t flooded.

    i worked for a.m.f at the butts untill turn key 1963 not a bad job but hard on family but i got in at beginning of the saturn 5 thru apollo 11 my thoughts on the titan complexs thay would make excellent nuclear power generating sites think if you will thay hardind all you need is some cooling water.as i see it the infrastructure is allready built j.g.w.

  29. Phil Nell on said:

    I served on a launch crew R-39 from 1963 until the 395A site was deactivated. This was a Titan I site. Just before deactivation, we were a competeion ith Atlas for an advanced reentry vehicle system. Each squadron was to launch 3 missiles. All three of the Titans failed despite a great record up to that time. Number 1, had a hard over on a thrust chamber anf failed. I t was enough down ranch that the range officer did noy have to desroy it. Number 2 was the launch of crew R-39. It failed. The thrust chamber igniter was not properly installed in the second stage thrust chamber. The igniter fired but the wires were trailing to far to the rear of the stage 2. The prepellants were not ignited. Number 3. The stored propellants of stage 2 were not properly loading, hence stage 2 fired but did not achienve the proper speed, In short it ran out of fuel.

    I was a (BMAT), Ballistic Missile Analyst Technician, on a Titan 1 launch crew assigned to the 725th Strategic Missile Squadron and based at site 5C. I’ll never forget the day I witnessed an LCO go beserk…

  34. Eric Ormosen on said:

    Thought I’d add an interesting detail of the Sutter Buttes site…. at the tunnel intersection of the main shaft, powerhouse, and control room, there sits the remains of a 19th century horse-drawn covered wagon in horrible disrepair. Figure THAT one out, of you can. Why, how, and who??

    I wish I would have taken a camera with me into the site, at least then I would have memories on film to share with my friends and family. Its very difficult to explain, but exploring that missle base really was an amazing and satisfying life experience that I will never forget. Its been almost 20 years since I was down there but the memories are still vivid, I can describe in detail everything I saw– the layout, condition, inventory of remaining items, construction details, etc. At 18 and 19 years old, not much consideration was given to the fact that we were trespassing, the potentially deadly hazards we encountered, the air we were breathing, or the fact that our lives likely depended on some cheap made-in-China flashlights. You cannot imagine the pitch black darkness down inside those tunnels, a chilling and eerie blackness like nothing I’ve experienced before or since. Get deep inside those tunnels and lose your flashlight and it would take nothing short of a miracle to fish your way back out of that maze over the floorless beams alive and unscathed. Some parts of the lower levels were flooded but for the most part the entire facility was accessible. I just wish I could go back now, after havng learned what I know and far more appreciative of the history and the massive undertaking these units were.

    I served in the 451st Strategic Missile Wing at Lowry AFB, Denver. Spent many hours in those sites when they were operational and a few hours in them when they had been abandoned..The salvage companies that stripped all the high-value stuff out really left a mess behind..They pulled up the floor plates, nice diamond plate steel, leaving a treacherous landscape to navigate in the dark..In the first picture here, looking down a tunnel leading to a silo, you see the horizontal support braces (on the left side) that once held the cable trays, miles of heavy electrical cables that ran from the Control Center out to the silos and antenna terminal..The floor plates are missing here too, leaving explorers standing in a foot of nasty water….In the second picture, a silo picture taken from the level 3 portal, the salvers left behind the the plumbing for the fire-water system, designed to flood the silo with water in the event of a fire…The forth picture looks like the main tunnel junction as you come out of the personnel access elevator / staircase..Turn right, you go to the power house..Left, to the Control Center..On the ceiling are the supports for the lights, which were hung on springs, shock-proof, as was everything in the complex…In the Denver squadron, the wreckers left most of the lights, to much trouble to take them down…

    Today, June, 2011 Lowry site 2C, located near Elizabeth, CO. is being excavated (all the fill dirt dug out) and the site demolished to placate local real estate developers who view it as a major hindrance to local property values. It’s a shame as this site is rumored to be in excellent condition, dry, never looted and pillaged by vandals and only lightly salvaged in 1969..Closed up tight as a drum since then..Another old Titan 1 site, the one on the NE corner of the Lowry Bombing Range (now being developed) is rumored to be in the best condition of all of them, never salvaged, the personnel access elevator still operational..

    Problems with site exploration…After they shut them down, without power, the silos slowly fill up with rainwater..Pumps once kept everything drained..The 64 ton concrete silo doors were not exactly water-tight.. Access. There are only 3 possible ways to get in. The original way, through the personnel access portal. This small, flat on the ground concrete slab sits next to the personnel access elevator, protected by large concrete doors similar to the ones over the silos. At some sites, after people removed the slab with jacks and crow-bars, authorities filled the staircase going down with sand or concrete..

    In the middle of the site, over the main tunnel that runs out to the silos, is the emergency escape hatch and vertical shaft..It’s just a 5′ diameter drain culvert with ladder rungs welded inside, usually full of sand..By opening the hatch from inside the complex, the sand falls into the tunnel and then launch crew members could escape the complex should the main elevator become unusable.. Authorities usually welded a steel plate over these shafts..

    During salvage operations, wreckers sometimes bulldozed the air intake structure which was close to the surface and through it, gain access to the powerhouse which was crammed full of items of interest to salvage companies..The air intake is a path of minimum resistance to get inside, but it will still take some serious steel cutting..

    While none of the Lowry squadron ever blew up, a couple of them did at other locations, along with a number of Titan 2 sites. The Air Force quickly lost their taste for liquid fueled missiles, technology advancements made them obsolete soon after they were built and today they are just fast-fading echos of the Cold War..

  36. Robert S. on said:

    More recollections..For the most part, the sites ran on commercial power except when the generators were being tested..However, one generator was kept running at all times in case commercial power failed…When the salvage contracts were being granted starting around 1967 and done by 1970, one of the requirements was that the winning company remove a rather long list of equipment (including the generators in the power house) and this equipment was turned over to the Air Force..The generators had to be dissembled before they could be loaded on the main elevator to the surface..The salvage people did not like that at all and there were lots of problems..Different sites were awarded to different companies and the Denver scrap market was flooded, collapsing scrap prices.

    Missing here is the human story..There were two squadrons, the 724th and 725th..They each had 3 sites which had to be manned 24/7 by, as I remember, 11 men including two officers..They settled on a “firehouse” schedule, working 24 hour shifts. A fleet of buses transported the 200 men everyday out to the 6 missile sites..It was a rare day when there were only 11 men in any given complex..Something ALWAYS needed repairing or updating so it was not unusual for the normal launch crew to be doubled or tripled..But it took 600 Airmen just to man the sites!

    The original plan was for a buttoned up (hardened) site not to need any above ground security but that never happened. There was always air-policemen manning the above-ground entrance gate. They were considered expendable in the event of war..It was a pretty rare thing for the entrance portal elevator silo doors to be closed. Each missile silo had a flashing light beacon to denote it’s safety status. Green, safe to approach. Yellow, possible danger. Red, stay clear. These lights became navigation aids for airliners approaching Denver! Russian bombers too perhaps..Orders came down to turn the lights off. They were replaced with a klaxon that sounded if the silo area was unsafe..No missiles were ever launched from an operational base..Instead, launch crews went to Vandenberg AFB on the California coast where a practice launch site was built..When a fully fueled T-1 missile suffered a major malfunction while the silo doors were still closed, the kerosene and LOX combined and the resulting explosion sent one of the 125 ton silo doors 1.8 miles to land on the edge of the base golf course…These missiles were supposed to be able to complete a launch countdown in about 2 hours, maybe a little less..But in reality, it usually took two weeks to get a bird through a countdown and into the air..Getting all the red lights on the control panels to disappear was very, very difficult…You could only keep them full of LOX for so long, then you had to abort, drain the LOX and start all over..Doing this was VERY risky business…

    Coming from an archetectural point of view, these structures are amazing and should be preserved at all costs. We see mankind’s feats of creation all around us; aircraft carriers, skyscrapers, metropolitan development, spacecraft of all sorts, and so much more. But the real unique feature here is that these underground works of art, baffle and confuse the rational mind. Some see a creation of wasted time and money, while others, (like myself), see a thing of intense intrigue. Regardless of its purposed design, one fact still stands, these structures will either find hands that polish its beauty, or they will dissolve into history.

    I was one lucky guy to have worked at all of the Titan one sites as as well as VAFB as the QC rep for AVCO Corp. We designed and manufactured the re-entry vehicle that housed the “weapon”. Got to see some of the first minuteman sites as well before moving on to other things with AVCO. Great experience except for the winters at Ellsworth, Minot and Cheyanne.

    We explored one of the Lowry sites when I was in high school in 1969.. Dry, but messed up. Lots of old computer printouts/cards, metal desks, beds…a whole world doen there. WE entered don the ladder and used Coleman lanterns. If they had gone out we could have really been in a pickle. I was fifteen. Would go nuts if my own kids tried anything like this.

  42. Hello

    I don’t understand why there’s silos being flooded and looked up, I’m surprised there’s not a bigger market for silos. What I find interesting is some people bought these things for pennies on a dollar and now are trying to sell them for millions. I’d love to have one but I’m also not going to pay an arm and leg for it either due to the fact it would take time and more money to fix it up. I’ve done research and these sites costed tax payers millions to build but there was a time you could get these for $17,800 to $40,000 dollars

  43. K Henry on said:

    I was at the Live Oak site in 81 and we just rode our bikes right up to the gate, looked around, placed our bikes over, hoped over and continued on up the road about a 1/4 mile. We sorta tried to find away in but wernt prepared with no flashlights or anything. The gaurd shack was barley standing and there was what I think was the remains of one of the antenna turrets dropped in a square concrete pit. There was a couple of 4″ diameter steel cables attached to one or more of the silo doors. There was a house on the right hand side near the gate i recall and there dog kept barking but we waited a few minuts and no one came out or looked out. I think they might have been away because we were up there for a couple of hours and came back down the road and over the gate.

  44. Connor T on said:

    Has anyone been to the Sutter Buttes location recently? I’m considering taking a look around that site but am a little concerned about the house sitting right at the gate. Do these people care if we hop the fence and take a hike to the silos?

  45. Tyson Y. on said:

    Some friends and I recently explored the Titan site near Royal City, in Eastern Washigton. The main elevator doors have been open for years along with the personnel entrance right next to the main elevator. I know that this was unsafe and not a very smart thing to do, but in my mind it was worth the risk. These are amazing sites. We were able to get into every part of it except the far silo. The silos were full of water up to about 5 feet below the concrete floor we stood on. There wasn’t really anything interesting left in there, but we were amazed to find an open porthole on one of the numerous fuel tanks in these facilities. It was empty of course and with a powerful spotlight we had, we could take a look inside. I was in awe of the size of these tanks. You can’t see the whole thing with it sitting there, only by looking on the inside. It was massive. We were also able to get a ladder and climb up in the huge ventilation shafts on the sides of the powerhouse. We saw the huge fan that ventilated the place, and there were even more oil/fuel reserve tanks up there. We were there for a few hours, but I already want to go back. It was an extremely memorable experience.

  48. Roy Giacone on said:

    I believe the Sturgis site was called “C” site. It was my duty station for 2 years.

  49. Roy Giacone on said:

    Yeah you might say it could have been a waste of money because the Titan 1 sites were not in service for very long but the time period was during the “cold war era”, and this missile, which was liquid fueled, was vulnerable because it took about 30 minutes to ready it for firing and once raised above ground all one had to do was take a rifle and put some holes in it. So with technology getting better as time went by along came Titan 2 with a solid fuel system plus it was launched like a Minuteman missile from an underground silo. While in the AF I was station at Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota (44th MMS) and worked at the “C” site. My duties there was taking care of the power generation systems for the site. I did get to roam on occasion always with another person of course, out to the Titan silos. One thing that impressed me while in the missile silo was the fire protection system they used. It was a water vapor or fog system and if you were ever caught in the missile silo when there was a fire, an alarm would sound and you only had a few seconds to get out or you would smother or I guess drown from the water vapor. These silos were deep and I remember a ladder from top to bottom. Was kind of scurry being in there in case something happen. They only kept RP1 loaded on the missile at all time and after the missile was raised they loaded the LOX. I remember the LOX storage tank would sometimes move around buy itself and make noises. When the LOX tanker came out to the site if they dropped that stuff on asphalt it would burn. Another remarkable thing I saw was when I went to the very bottom of the powered house bottom level and saw that there were these large shock absorbers or springs that in case of a direct hit the floors could drop and the shock would be absorbed. Every mechanical connection in that place was flexed. One other thing, because of the upper echelon launch crew members (officers) there on duty, we had great chow. ?
    I graduated to a Mace Missiles launch crew after my Titan service and relocated to Germany. Different missile which was actually a jet plane launched out of a partial silo. Was great duty.

    After a recent tour of this base, i HAVE to say, there is no WAY you could “walk on in”,we had to repell into it, and after our tour, the owner welded up ANY chance of entry
