Montana is a sportsman's paradise.
Wolf Creek Ranch Road Property
Only ten minutes from the beautiful small town of Bigfork and 35 minutes from Glacier International Airport, this Wolf Creek Ranch Road property sits on the eastern edge of the Flathead Valley, at the base of Montana's Swan Range. With a mix of woods & meadow, several year-round springs, and approximately 290' of frontage on Wolf Creek, this level, easily-accessible property offers incredible views and abundant wildlife.
Wolf Creek helps divide the agricultural lands of the valley floor from the forests that spill down from the nearby mountains. The property offers an excellent building site. Wildlife is abundant. The owners see white-tailed deer and turkeys on a regular basis, and there are trout in the creek that borders the 10 acres. There are also grouse, ducks, geese, mule deer, elk, moose and black bears in the immediate vicinity. All the big predators - grizzly bears, wolves, mountain lions - live in the general area. There are mountain goats and bighorn sheep in the nearby mountains, and ruffed grouse, pheasants and the occasional Hungarian partridge on the valley floor. Wild rainbow trout, cutthroat trout and bull trout live in the local streams and rivers - including the nearby Swan River - while lake trout, pike and bass swim 15 minutes away in Flathead Lake, the largest natural lake west of the Mississippi.

The 10 acres is mostly woods, with several acres of meadow. The Swan Range and the Great Bear Wilderness are to the east; Swan Lake, the Swan River and the Swan Valley are to the south; the village of Bigfork, along with Flathead Lake and the Flathead Valley, are to to the west; Glacier National Park, the town of Whitefish, and the ski area at Whitefish Mountain Resort are to the north.
The prime building site on the 10 acres has excellent views and plenty of sunshine. There is ample space for horses, as well as a large garden. Power and phone lines are easily accessible. While the property already has creek frontage, it should also be possible to add a trout pond near the building site.
