Trapper View Ranch is 689± acres of forest, meadows, springs, and grassy benches.  Situated at the base of Trapper Peak and the Bitterroot Mountain Range the ranch is bordered by National Forest and boasts approximately 200± irrigated acres and 389± acres of water rights. A vintage farmhouse, built in the early 1900s, is tucked away in a secluded location with manicured lawns and mature shade trees.

This property is one of the most pristine ranches available in the Bitterroot Valley, bordered to the west by the Bitterroot National Forest and beyond lies the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness area. The forests provide the perfect habitat for deer, elk, and moose while abundant springs give moisture to plants and wildlife.

The offering includes a non-contiguous 20± acre parcel on the Bitterroot River, a perfect spot to build a luxury guest cabin or embark on fly fishing excursions. Cold crystal clear waters provide abundant Cutthroat, Brown, and Rainbow trout fishery. The Bitterroot River flows over 70 miles from the headwaters in the Sapphire and Bitterroot mountain ranges to the confluence with the Clark Fork in Missoula, Montana.

The ranch is less than 5 minutes from Darby, Montana, a quaint western town surrounded by rivers and mountains. The Trapper View Ranch is an opportunity to own a ranch in the shadow of the mountains, and a destination to let go, walk the land, embrace nature, and make your own “Montana Dream” come true. The Missoula International Airport is a short 90-minute drive from the ranch making it easy to come and go.
