This 20-acre parcel is within the well designed and thoughtfully developed Lost Sapphire Ranch/ Yellowstone Basin subdivision just 15 miles from Philipsburg, MT. Conveniently located on the periphery of the subdivision bordering a scenic 1,000+ acre ranch, the property is only 200 feet to the northwest of the Beaverhead National Forest.Within the 20-acre tract there is a variety of topography including the gentle sloped southern aspect, which accounts for approximately half of the property. The northern portion of the parcel has a steep tree-lined ridge and a quiet valley with Elk Creek flowing through the property near E Fork Road. The property boasts good year-round access from both the north and south boundaries of the property and breathtaking 270-Degree views of Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness Area.
The East Fork Reservoir is less than a mile from the property down Mountain Moose Road, which runs along the southern property boundary. Drive another three miles and you'll find a trailhead for the Anaconda-Pintler Wilderness, considered by many as "one of the jewels of the northern rockies," offering miles of trails that traverse 10,000' peaks and along dozens of alpine lakes. From the property, Rock Creek, Discovery Ski Area, and Georgetown Lake are all just a short drive. Philipsburg is the best that small-town Montana has to offer - a quaint downtown surrounded by endless Rocky Mountain recreation. The local area is widely known for its exceptional recreational offerings including fishing, skiing, hiking, horseback riding, ATVing, snowmobiling, boating, hunting, kite-boarding and more.
Just thirty miles south of I-90 on the famous Pintler Scenic Route, Philipsburg is halfway between Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park and only an hour away from Butte and Missoula.
