Listing # 59-1635
20 acres for sale surrounded by national forest with no neighbors, amazing mountain views, trees, elk and deer all near Sappington Creek, Trapper Lake and the famed Big Hole River. Here it is; the Montana mountain property you’ve been waiting for that’s surrounded by the Beaverhead/Deerlodge National Forest. Let me say that again, it’s SURROUNDED BY NATIONAL FOREST. There’s no neighbors. It's right out in the middle of the Beaverhead Deerlodge National Forest not just along the edge of it. There’s a national forest road leading to the property and some great building or camping sites that have been leveled and are ready to go with some of the most amazing views of the surrounding mountains. There’s Granite Mountain, Lion Mountain, Cleve Mountain, and Sheriff Mountain to name just a few. The mountains are above tree line and it’s got that great alpine look and feel. This is a must see to believe and experience. There’s jeep and ATV trails that take you right onto the national forest from the property and up near the tops of some of these nearby mountains where you’ll have a chance of seeing mountain goats and bighorn sheep, as well as, the elk, deer and moose in the area. It’s high country at its finest and its close access right from the property. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination and ambition. You can also hunt your property for deer and elk or step right out onto the National Forest and take off from there. There’s thousands and thousands of acres and you’re right out in the middle of it all. You can hunt both elk and deer with a general tag and there’s extra cow tags you can draw for a second elk as well since the elk are so plentiful in Hunting District 331. There’s vast amounts of country to find them in, so you can’t go wrong. Trapper Lake is a high mountain Lake that’s only about 1 mile from the property too. It has lots of high mountain cutthroat trout in it for lots and lots of fun. Sappington Creek is also within about 300 feet of the property. So there’s fresh high mountain water close by and it has some small cutthroat trout in it as well. The Pioneer Mountains here have lots of high mountain lakes and streams to hike, explore, and fish. If that’s not enough the Big Hole River is back down Trapper Creek Road at Melrose, Montana and the Beaverhead River is nearby too. It’s a fisherman’s paradise. The area is rich in mining history as well. Some of the remains of the old towns of Hecla, Lion City, and Trapper City can still be found. Trapper City used to sit just under this property along Sappington Creek with the miners working on this property, the Trapper Lode, in hopes of striking it rich on the silver, copper, and other metals these mountains hold. Some evidence of the past mining can still be seen, but most of the property is forested and primarily undisturbed. It now has a remote and quiet feel that you just want to get away to and relax. This is high elevation snowy country at 8200 feet, so don’t ask about living here year round. It’s recreational property at its finest during the summer and fall, but not a place to live in the winter. The road is rough in places too. From Melrose, Montana there’s about 8 miles of relatively good gravel road. From there it’s another approximately 6 miles of rough unmaintained county road and then about 1 more mile of rough National Forest road to the property You might consider bringing in a pickup box camper or pulling a small camper in or possibly even trailering some building materials in for a cabin, but you’d have to take it slow and it would be rough. Melrose which is about 15 miles away has fuel and a place to eat. It’s about 46 miles to Dillon and about 50 miles to Butte for more of the amenities and an airport there in Butte. This is an extremely rare find being surrounded by National Forest and having all these hunting, fishing, and recreating opportunities at your fingertips along with the history and wildlife in the area. It’s that great piece of Montana mountain heaven that could be all yours to own. All your friends will be jealous for sure. Don’t let this one slip away.
