Overlooking the spectacular Boulder River Valley the McLeod Highlands Ranch commands breathtaking views of one of the most beautiful areas in Montana. Striking views to the south showcase the Main and West Boulder Rivers and the Absaroka-Beartooth mountains while the Crazy Mountains frame your view to the north. Outdoor enthusiasts and privacy seekers will truly appreciate the scenic and expansive 1,192± acre ranch graced with abundant water resources, miles of improved road, deep draws and rolling wooded hills. The property provides healthy habitat for whitetail and mule deer, elk, antelope, turkey, Hungarian partridge, sharptailed grouse, bears, mountain lions, as well as multiple raptor species.

Pride of ownership is evident throughout the ranch showcased by excellent land use practices limiting livestock access to sensitive habitat throughout the ranch. Developed and undeveloped springs are sprinkled throughout the ranch providing water for wildlife and livestock. There is also fencing throughout for cattle and horses.

Accommodations on this completely private ranch include a compound of small well-appointed custom cabins as well as an “elk camp” near Grotto Spring which is outfitted with a wall tent, tepee, and picnic area, deluxe outhouse, and horse corral. Additionally there is a buried 10’x10’ shipping container for year round weather proof, bear proof storage.

The McLeod Highlands Ranch is comprised of several separate drainages that work together to form a well balanced and recreationally diverse ranch providing one of the most scenic and prolific recreational ranches in the lower 48 states and Montana.

The McLeod Highlands Ranch and the surrounding northern slopes of the Absaroka/Beartooth Wilderness of south central Montana has long been known for its stunning beauty, crystal clear trout streams and limitless wild country to explore on foot or horseback. Laced with vibrant aspen groves and evergreen covered slopes, and open parks of wild flowers all in the shadow of jagged, snow capped peaks, the McLeod Highlands Ranch is what you see when you dream of your Montana ranch.
