Land bordering the National Forest on 3 sides in the Elkhorn Mountains at the end of a private driveway with a cabin site, elk and deer hunting, incredible views, camping, ATV, & more. It’s extremely rare to find land like this in the Elkhorn Mountains, which also borders the National Forest and has good road access. You can pull your camper in and start enjoying it immediately while you make plans to build that cabin in the mountains you’ve always wanted. Make sure you build it with lots of windows and face them towards the distant views of all the mountain ranges like the Tobacco Root Mountains, The Highland Mountains, and the Bull Mountains, and you’ve got the Elkhorn Mountains right there close out your front door. And be sure to build a big deck to sit out and listen to the elk bugle in the fall and watch the sunsets over the Rocky Mountains. There are great spots to pick from to build, so it’s ready to start planning and building your new Montana mountain cabin whenever you are. Or bring up that wall tent or camper and have that place on the Elkhorn Mountains of your very own that you and your family can enjoy and pass down through the generations. The property is at the end of a private road, so you have the privacy you want. What a feeling to know you’ve always got a place in the mountains to get away, relax, and get back to nature; that’s all yours. This 18.9 acres of property borders the Helena National Forest on 3 sides, and you’re way out in the National Forest where you can go in any direction and hunt, hike, and enjoy the tens of thousands of acres of National Forest all around you. It’s like you’re buying a lot more land with all this easily accessible National Forest right out your front door. That’s yours to enjoy any time you take a notion. There are trails to hike, roads to drive or ATV, elk and deer to hunt, mountains to be climbed, and places to be explored, and it’s all close within minutes of your new property in the mountains. It’s such a fantastic bonus to have all this extra National Forest land right at your fingertips; you can’t go wrong. The Elkhorn Mountains are renowned in Montana for their elk. They are plentiful, and the bulls grow big here in the Elkhorns, which is why the limited bull elk hunting tags are so coveted. This special hunting district in Montana is designed specifically to grow mature bull elk. So, owning property here in the Elkhorns, you’re sure to see and hear them while you’re away from civilization, staying in your new cabin in the mountains. Please set up your spotting scope and glass the elk while they graze in the open parks before heading into the timber-covered hillsides for the day. If you want to hunt them, apply for the Hunting District 380 bull elk tag, which is extremely hard to draw. But in the meantime, you can also hunt for spike bulls and cow elk on your general elk tag and apply for second cow elk tags since the elk are so numerous. And don’t forget about all the deer and bear hunting as well. The Elkhorns are full of wildlife. The property is a true off the grid recreational property with no power close by and a seasonally closed gate near the National Forest boundary about 3 miles below the property. The gate is locked every year and closed to all motorized use, including snowmobiles, from December 2nd to May 15th to provide the elk, deer, and other wildlife security on their winter range. The road is pretty much snowed in during those winter months anyway, so plan on returning to your property in the mountains in May as spring brings new growth and new life to the Elkhorns. Bring your 4-wheel drive as the road is semi-rough, and you’ll have to take it slow with any campers or trailers you decide to bring into the property. Bring your horses too and ride the mountains right from your place. You’re only about 15 miles back down the drainage to the pavement at Townsend, Montana, so it’s not far when you’re ready to head home or go to town for supplies, gas, or eat out. From there, it’s only about 35 miles north to Helena, Montana, and about 65 miles south to Bozeman, Montana, with international airports and even more amenities. Canyon Ferry Lake and the Missouri River are only about 15 miles away, near Townsend, and are great for fishing, floating, and having fun on the water. This great Montana property has what almost everybody is looking for, bordering National Forest with its cabin sites, wildlife, hunting, and views, and that’s not to mention being a rare find out in the Elkhorn Mountains. Your family and friends will be glad you didn’t let this opportunity slip away.
