An amazing find bordering National Forest close to Helena, Montana with Telegraph Creek, elk and deer hunting, with a leveled cabin site on a gated road in the forest with all its mining history. This is a rare opportunity that doesn’t come along very often to own everything you could want in a Montana mountain property. It borders the Helena National Forest where you can just step from your front porch right on to the National Forest and hunt, fish, and recreate all you’d like on thousands and thousands of additional acres of National Forest. You’ll find elk, deer, moose, and a multitude of other wildlife living throughout the forest your property sits in the middle of. You’ll hear the elk bugling in the fall as you’re right out in the center of their rutting and breeding grounds. The last time I was to the property you could hear the cow elk chirping to their calves and the smell of elk was in the air. To say it was elky is an understatement. The property is in a general over the counter elk tag area for residents so you can get the tags easier and hunt elk more here as well as extra cow tag opportunities since the elk are so plentiful. The headwaters of Telegraph Creek run right through the middle of the property. So you’ve got water and wildlife right out your back door. Build your cabin right next to the creek where you can listen to it and watch and enjoy it. Or there’s another leveled site behind a locked gate that sits up higher right next to the National Forest boundary. You can build that cabin in the woods you’ve always wanted where you can go get away from civilization for a while and relax in your very own forest and listen to the creek and mother nature all around you. There’s even an outhouse already on the property and it's ready to use should the need arise. It’s easy to get into the property too. There’s a good, improved gravel surfaced road the whole way which makes it easier to build or pull your camper right in and start using it immediately. It’s a Forest Service maintained road through the property and beyond, so you don’t even have to worry about upkeep on the road. You’re only about 12 miles from the highway at Elliston, Montana and Helena is only about 30 miles away so it’s easy in and easy out whenever you take a notion to go enjoy your Montana mountain property. There are plenty of roads to drive and/or ATV in the area too so you can take off and explore the mountains from there. And you’re close to the Continental Divide and the Continental Divide Trail system for hiking and hunting. For fishing you’ve got the Little Blackfoot River just back down the road near Elliston and a myriad of lakes like Holter, Hauser, and Canyon Ferry near Helena. Power is about 5 miles away so you’re looking at alternative off-the-grid energy sources for your new mountain cabin. The property gets snowed in during the winter so it’s not a place to live year-round, but it’s an easy snowmobile ride in and there’s a snowmobile trail system in the area to enjoy as well for weekend fun. And with the improved road, it makes it that much easier to get building materials in, or get propane delivered, or even get a will drilled and other improvements like that. The Telegraph Creek area is rich in mining history where the old-timers used to dig for gold and silver. There are several old miner’s cabins on the property and an old mining lift still stands to this day. It’s been reinforced more recently with steel beams and has a chain link fence around it for safety. You can see the old shaft goes straight down below it with its wood lined walls over 100 feet where it then fills with water. Imagine the history and the stories the Lilly Lode mine could tell. The area around the lift has also been cleaned up and reclaimed to its old contours so it’s on the mend from all those old mining days. One of the old miner’s cabins sits right near the lift and you can just imagine all the work and history this property holds. Having the old lift right here on the property is close to priceless and one of the most unique features in the entire area. And its right here on your property. As far as recreational properties go, this a no brainer. With great gravel road access and bordering the National Forest, it’s easy to own and enjoy. And this close to Helena with all the elk and elk hunting opportunities, this kind of property in this location is highly sought after.
