Bordering National Forest
Creek On The 12+ Acres
Near The Big Hole River

Listing # 59-1666 $94,750

12.85+ acres bordering National Forest with a creek, amazing mountain views, trees, elk and deer all near Trapper Lake and the famed Big Hole River. Here it is; the Montana mountain property you’ve been waiting for that borders the Beaverhead/Deer Lodge National Forest. And it’s right out in the middle of the Beaverhead Deer Lodge National Forest not just along the edge of it. There’s an unmaintained county road right to the property and a great building or camping site that’s been cleared right next to the National Forest 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. It’s a must see to believe and experience. There’s a creek right on the property for sparkling mountain water right out your back door. And Sappington Creek is just over the hill as well which has small cutthroat trout in it. So, you can go fishing just a short walk from the property on to the National Forest from the property. There are jeep and ATV trails that take you right on to the National Forest from the property and up to near the tops of some of these mountains in the area where you’ll have a chance of seeing mountain goats and bighorn sheep as well as the elk, deer and moose. It’s high country at its finest and it’s all close by where you can access it 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 on to 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 are extra cow tags you can draw for a second elk as well since the elk are so plentiful in Hunting District 331. There are 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 1/2 miles from the property too. It has lots of high mountain cutthroat trout in it for lots and lots of fun. 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 where the miners worked and lived 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 looks primarily undisturbed. 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 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 bordering the 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 - call Scott Joyner at 406-223-6039 to learn more and visit about purchasing this great Montana property. Priced at $94,750.
