Overview: Located southeast of Livingston, Montana, the Little Mission Creek Ranch enjoys privacy and seclusion in a spectacular mountain foothill setting. Consisting of five contiguous parcels totaling approximately 586 deeded acres, the property lies near the Absaroka Range, the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The ranch is well-watered with four small streams including ¾ mile of Little Mission Creek. Improvements consist of a log homestead building, a small set of corrals and perimeter fencing, with a number of superior building sites offering tremendous views. The Gallatin National Forest boundary is within a mile of the ranch, and both the Yellowstone and Boulder Rivers are within a 30-minute drive. The Little Mission Creek Ranch offers strong recreational amenities, an agricultural component, potential conservation options and many choice homesites, creating a unique purchase opportunity in one of the most scenic locations in Montana.
Location: Situated on the northern end of the spectacular Absaroka Mountain Range, the Little Mission Creek Ranch consists of five contiguous parcels totaling approximately 586+/- deeded acres. Swingley Road runs west to east through the acreage with two parcels of the property lying north of the road and three lying south. Little Mission Creek flows roughly 3/4 mile through the ranch, and there are portions of three other small creeks located on the acreage – Anderson, Billy Goat and Bullis Creeks – as well as scattered springs.
Live Water: Little Mission Creek supports a modest cutthroat and hybrid rainbow-cutthroat trout “cut-bow” fishery. The West Boulder River and the Yellowstone River are both within a 30-minute drive. Montana’s trout streams are legendary – in quantity, quality and scale – and the state contains more premier water than could be fished in a lifetime. Seven rivers in Montana have the distinction of being labeled with “blue ribbon” status – simply the “cream of the crop”. Within a one and a half hour drive from the Little Mission Creek Ranch are four “blue ribbon” designated trout streams – the Yellowstone, Gallatin, Madison, and Missouri Rivers, as well as several other notable trout rivers.
Summary: The Little Mission Creek Ranch is a diverse property situated in one of the most sought-after areas of southwest Montana. Surrounding neighbors are ranches, and the immediate area is generally considered tightly-held with long standing multi-generational ownership. The ranch offers strong recreational amenities, an agricultural component, potential conservation options, and multiple choices for homesites, creating a unique and compelling purchase opportunity in one of the most scenic locations in Montana.
