Located in the beautiful Canyon Creek Valley lays 5,967± acres of The Settle Ranch. This extraordinary Ranch offers diverse landscapes, including forested mountains, sagebrush hillsides, aspen creek bottoms, irrigated hay fields, and natural grasslands. Located 25± minutes from Helena, Montana’s state capital, the Settle Ranch is a generational working ranch providing excellent wildlife resources, recreation, and natural beauty.

Developed as a traditional Montana cattle ranch, the Settle Ranch improvements comprise multiple residences, historic sheep barns, loafing sheds, and corrals. Two center-pivot irrigation systems support a haying operation that feeds the 400± cow-calf pairs the Ranch maintains. A 4± acre pond, a seasonal creek, and multiple irrigation ditches provide water for agriculture production and recreational use. As a significant winter range habitat, the property maintains a year-round big game presence, specifically elk, whitetail, mule deer, and antelope.

For thousands of years, the Helena Valley has hosted the wanderings of Native Americans, fur trappers, gold prospectors, and homestead farmers. As the Last Chance Gulch gold strike lessened, farms and ranches spread across the fertile Helena Valley.

Centrally located in western Montana, the Settle Ranch provides quick access to a multitude of recreation. Endless acres of public land provide miles of hiking, biking, skiing, and riding access within minutes. In under 45± minutes, anglers and boaters can recreate on the Missouri River, as well as many lakes and creeks. Helena offers museums, theaters, concerts, and an active art scene. The Settle Ranch perfectly combines a traditional working cattle ranch and endless opportunities to enjoy outdoor recreation.
