Bordering National Forest with amazing mountain views and wildlife all near Trapper Lake and the famed Big Hole River. Here’s an affordable Montana mountain property that borders the Beaverhead/Deer Lodge National Forest. And its right out in the middle of the Beaverhead Deer Lodge National Forest not just along the edge of it. The property sits in a high alpine basin right under Lion, Sheriff, and Cleve Mountains. You’ll be able to see bighorn sheep and mountain goats right from the property as well as mule deer, elk and moose. The property is at the end of a private road where there’s a camping site that’s already been leveled overlooking the Trapper Creek Valley and looking right up at the mountain tops. This property is ready to camp and enjoy the mountain views and the fresh high mountain air. Because it’s so high and right next to the mountains, it’s not a place for a cabin as the area is prone to avalanches in the winter, but tent camping or pulling a small camper up for the summer and fall months puts you in the middle of one of the most awesome settings around. The entire drainage is rich in mining history. 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. It’s hard to imagine all the miners and the activity the property and the Trapper Creek drainage used to have. You can still see some of the old mining apparatus in the basin and up on the headwall the miners used to scale and tunnel in to. Some of the old cables can still be seen as well. It’s an amazing setting and an amazing opportunity to purchase a one of kind property.
