The Greyson Creek Ranch is located 16 miles northwest of Townsend on the west slope of the Big Belt Mountains, south of Highway 12. Drive 11 miles east of town on Highway 12. Then travel three miles south on the Ross Gulch graveled county road. Turn east on Upper Greyson Creek Road for two miles to the end of the public road and the entrance to the ranch. Helena is about an hour’s drive away. Bozeman and its commercial airport are about an hour and one-half. Extensive private and commercial air service is available in both Bozeman and Helena.
The west slope of the Big Belt Mountains is a very private area little known outside of the local community. It consists of a series of mountain ranches that offer back-door access to and views of one of Montana’s more intimate mountain ranges and front door views across the Canyon Ferry Reservoir to the Elkhorn Mountains. The area was made famous in the 1860’s and 1870’s for the gold placer diggings. Currently the area is better known for trophy elk and top quality mule deer hunting in the Big Belts.
We consider one of the great benefits of this area is that it is not on the main road yet it is easily accessible from both Helena and Bozeman. Townsend is a very attractive small town which provides most basic services and is only 16 miles away.
