    • The site is open to the public twice a year on April 7th and October 6th this year. No reservations are required to visit the site, but are required if you take the City of Socorro Shuttle to the site.

  1. Please call or email me ASAP regarding Trinity Site visit on April 7, 2018. My understanding is the Socorro sponsors a shuttle/bus to the site for a fee. I’d like to confirm/reserve and also would like to know where to park that day. Thanks, Ron Greene!

  2. This event is free and open to the public. No reservations are required. If you would like to reserve transportation Department at 575-835-1501.

  3. My wife and I visited Trinity Site a few years ago and are contemplating another trip there. Looking for info on the internet I am confused with the process. We stayed in Socorro, but it seemed we drove a ways, perhaps onto WSMR before parking and then taking a bus. What I am reading here on this site differs from what I remember. Please help.


    • Nothing has changed, but the City of Socorro Transportation Department does provide transportation to the site and back. Their is limited space so you can make reservations at 575-835-1501.

  4. Hello! We’re planning to visit the Trinity Site April 2019 and are looking for recommendations for RV parks/sites with hookups in the vicinity. Hope to get a response, thank you.
