A ranch believed to be one of the largest private undeveloped properties in the Rocky Mountain West is seeking $136.25 million, making it one of the most expensive properties ever listed for sale in the state of Montana.
Climbing Arrow Ranch is actually a series of five separate, noncontiguous parcels that total about 80,000 acres. One of the parcels borders ranches owned by media mogul and prominent landowner Ted Turner, according to listing agent Mike Swan of Swan Land Company. The ranch was also featured in “A River Runs Through It,” the 1992 movie directed by Robert Redford.
Located roughly 30 miles from Bozeman and spanning four counties, the ranch includes irrigated hay meadows along the Madison River and limestone cliffs. It is known for its bull-elk hunting and trout fishing (the latter activity was featured in the movie).
