Welcome to the Trappers Cabin Ranch
This land was originally held by the Federal Government under the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 and later passed on to the Northern Pacific Railroad. In 1905, the area was harvested for timber by the railroads and then in 1910, Tom Lincoln, a trapper, constructed a cabin on the ranch that still exists today. In 1940, this true legacy property was purchased by a Dr. McGill who founded the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana.
This beautiful 640± acre alpine ranch is surrounded by the Lee Metcalf Wilderness and NFS lands. Over the years, owners of the property have developed 29 different horseback and hiking trails on the property.
This property features an abundance of grassy alpine meadows and clear mountain streams along with massive mountain views. Surrounded by miles of trails (some extending into the public land) the Trappers Cabin Ranch offers fenced pastures, a barn, a building compound consisting of 3 log homes, managers cabin, and multiple support improvements including an off-grid power plant.
The sporting opportunities of this property are endless. You can find the Trappers Cabin Ranch 14 miles south of the Big Sky resort. The Trappers Cabin Ranch is surrounded by some of the most beautiful alpine and wilderness country and is part of one of the largest intact ecosystems in the world.
