Fay Ranches represented the Buyer.

Located in one of the premier locations of the greater Bozeman area, the historic 970± acre Leffingwell Ranch hosts expansive views of the Bridger and Crazy Mountain Ranges, clear creeks, verdant meadow bottoms, tree-covered hills, and wildlife galore. Surrounded by neighboring ranches protected by conservation easements, the Leffingwell Ranch offers quiet solitude without being far from town and with little risk of future development. Traditionally operated as a working ranch and dude ranch by the same family since the early 1900s, the history of this ranch runs deep.

Brackett and Miles Creek wind through the Leffingwell Ranch and provide world-class fishing opportunities as headwater tributaries of the Shields River. Brown and rainbow trout live in Brackett Creeks’ riffles and pools with little outside fishing pressure. Miles Creek acts as a prolific spawning stream, enhancing the fish populations of Brackett Creek.

With plentiful vegetation and shelter, well-established big game herds frequent the Leffingwell Ranch meadows year-round. A general tag in Montana hunting district 393 allows hunters to capture large elk and deer on the property.

Surrounded by some of Montana’s most desirable recreational mountains, the Leffingwell ranch offers the outdoors enthusiast plenty of opportunities for skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding in public lands with various trailheads nearby. Bridger Bowl and Crosscut Mountain Sports Center are reachable within minutes.

Located close to Clyde Park, Montana, small-town charm and basic amenities are within easy reach of the Leffingwell Ranch. In under 40 miles, Livingston and Bozeman, Montana, provides all comforts of larger towns with the pleasure of western living.
