Sitting at the confluence of the Main Boulder River and the West Boulder River, this property is easily accessed year-round off Highway 298. Bordering the Main Boulder River for about a half mile and the West Boulder River for 280± feet, the ranch encompasses 150± riverfront acres contiguous to 72± acres of State land. Rolling terrain offers private building envelopes and mountain views. Elevation ranges from about 4,740’ to 4,820’. A well and power make this the perfect property to build your Montana dream home on the river. The Beartooth Mountains and Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness loom to the south, while the Crazy Mountains dominate the landscape to the north. Just 15± minutes south of Big Timber, Montana, with easy year-round access off Highway 298, this secluded property is a wildlife epicenter with excellent fishing opportunities.

This property is a fishing dream with a rich riparian corridor, including about half a mile of the Main Boulder River and a few hundred feet of the West Boulder River. The Boulder River flows 20± more miles from the property into the Yellowstone River near Big Timber. At the confluence of the West Boulder and Boulder Rivers, the West Boulder River has traveled some 29± miles through wilderness. The Boulder River provides relative privacy because it can only be floated during spring runoff. The rest of the year, you will have the river to yourself most of the time.

The Boulder River Valley is famous for its large numbers of white-tailed and mule deer. In addition to deer hunting, there are various hunting opportunities for other game species—elk, antelope, bear, turkey, Hungarian partridge, sharp-tailed grouse, and pheasant on the property and on nearby public land.
