DEARBORN CANYON OVERLOOK | Sold
Augusta, Montana | Lewis and Clark County
- 20± Deeded Acres
- Dearborn River Frontage
Dearborn Canyon Overlook is nestled in the pines above the crystalline waters of the Upper Dearborn River on a promontory that captivates the senses with stunning alpine vistas and the roar of the river cascading through the canyon. Complementing the tranquil alpine environment, a beautiful handcrafted log home sits on 20± deeded acres that share a boundary with the Lewis and Clark National Forest and adjoining Scapegoat and Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex – over two-million acres of some of the most pristine forest and wilderness in the United States.
The Property sits in the Dearborn Canyon at the foothills of the striking Rocky Mountain Front to the west and the vast grassy prairies rolling to the eastern horizon. The Dearborn River and the Rocky Mountain Front provide a magnificent backdrop for the Dearborn Canyon Overlook. The summit of Steamboat Mountain rises to over 8,297 feet in elevation to the north and the summit of Twin Buttes rises to 7,335 feet in elevation to the south. Individuals desirous of escaping to the cool summer evenings and temperate summer days to enjoy hiking, horseback riding, fishing and hunting in a premier location will appreciate the opportunity Dearborn Canyon Overlook provides. Several attractive locations exist to construct a small set of working corrals to maintain several saddle or pack horses for the summer months. With limitless hiking and trail-riding opportunities out your back door, the next owner will enjoy years of exploring the back country of the adjoining National Forest Lands and Bob Marshall Wilderness Area.
Dearborn Canyon Overlook is further enhanced by over 850’ of private Dearborn River frontage accessed from the Property. A short stroll through the woods to the river places you in a scenic paradise next to pristine waters – a wonderful location from which to enjoy fishing in the deep pools and runs populated with cutthroat and rainbow trout. Located in the heart of some of the country’s finest flyfishing, the Property not only offers anglers private access to miles of the Dearborn River but also an easy day trip to the trout-rich Missouri River and other nearby waters.
If the setting itself is not enough, the improvements to the Property are exceptional. A private locked gate frames the entrance to the tree-lined driveway and leads to an impeccably maintained log home that has been masterfully constructed in a very carefully chosen setting. From the deck of the 4,000 square-foot home, the views of the river and the surrounding mountains are nothing short of breathtaking.
Dearborn Canyon Overlook is indeed a true gateway to wilderness, and is ideally suited as an alpine retreat or a full-time residence for the buyer seeking mountain solitude in one of Montana’s most unique and beautiful locations.
