A True River to Mountain Property: This is a complete sportsman’s package with incredible hunting and fishing! Nestled in the shadow of Bull Mountain and surrounded by the Elkhorn, Boulder and Highland Mountains, sits the exceptional unspoiled 2,687± acre wildlife-rich North Boulder River Ranch. Located just 50 minutes west of Bozeman in the tightly held North Boulder River Valley, land this size in this valley rarely comes to market. A lengthy 1.2± miles of both sides of the trout-rich North Boulder River meanders through the east side of the ranch, while the west side borders public land that provides access to 8,746± acres of BLM land, 6,913± acres of National Forest and 1,266± acres of State land. A mix of forested canyons, rolling hills of native grass and riparian river bottom provides a healthy mix of terrain and vegetation that is suitable for a remarkable variety of wildlife, including antelope, mule deer, white-tailed deer, elk, moose, grouse, partridge and pheasants. With some of the country’s most breathtaking scenery, this property enjoys views of seven mountain ranges in a completely unspoiled valley that has remained unchanged for generations.
