Little Belt Mountains Ride

Little Belt Mountains Ride
Montana USA

Explore the surrounding area of the Judith River Headwaters and the Little Belt Mountains & ride where the "cowboy artist" Charlie Russell once rode.

The 520 acres ranch is located at the base of the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest allowing guests to explore the mountains by horseback, fish for trout in cascading streams, hike to see the bountiful wildlife, or take guided tours into the National Forest.

Horseback riding is what the Ranch is known for. We have horses suitable to every level of experience. You'll traverse the wide-open prairies, ride along—and through—the Judith River and explore the mountains of the Helena Lewis & Clark National Forest. For more experienced riders, trotting and loping can be incorporated into rides where the terrain allows. For those who would like to get more comfortable in the saddle, lessons are available for an additional charge.

There are plenty of activities from archery to hiking to shooting. For the more adventurous, take a UTV tour to the Helena Lewis & Clark National Forest and hike to the nearby caves. Or visit nearby Sapphire Village for a taste of the local culture. The nearby mine is the only place where the precious Yogo Sapphires can be found.
