Virginia City West Ranch Near Bozeman And Yellowstone


Located just off of paved Montana 287 between Virginia City and Alder, this ranch has million-dollar 360-degree views. Currently leased for cattle grazing and utilized for outdoor activities, the ranch has underutilized potential. Conveying with the sale is an option of renewing the nearly 370-acre BLM lease that borders the ranch’s east side. The parcel is situated just over an hour from Bozeman and Butte and just 20 minutes from Ennis and its everyday amenities. The ranch is in Montana hunting district 320, with liberal general licensing opportunities for resident and non-resident hunters. Elevations on the ranch average 6,100 feet, and consist of open juniper-covered valleys, ridges, and mountains. Springs seep out of the earth providing water and life for the area’s inhabitants. Legal access is provided off of the paved highway on the ranches south end and via a county road to the North. If you are looking to own a piece of Southwest Montana with great investment potential, please give us a call.
