The McAlister Ranch is located in Paradise Valley 20 minutes south of Livingston, Montana. The property offers an abundance of recreational opportunities encompassing 661+/- deeded acres that extend from the Yellowstone river valley to a forest service border adjacent to thousands of acres of wilderness. Stretching across diverse topography, the Ranch is a mix of meadows, rolling hills, mature aspen stands, coniferous forest, lush creek frontage, and grasslands. Water amenities include over 1000 feet of Barney Creek and irrigation rights out of Pine Creek providing flood irrigation to approximately 40 acres of pasture, and 40 acres of hay ground. Improvements include a renovated 1917 farm house, a well-maintained 1920's barn, a small guest house, indoor and outdoor riding arenas, wilderness cabin and various agricultural outbuildings. Exclusive access to public lands along with the populations of elk, mule & whitetail deer, birds of prey, wolves, mountain lion, moose and bear provide year around recreational opportunities including private hunting, skiing and hiking. Barney Creek Ranch is surrounded by three mountain ranges with stunning vistas of the Yellowstone River basin and the nearby wilderness area. Celebrated fisheries and Yellowstone National Park are a short distance away. Airport access is convenient for both private and public flights. Note: some of the grassland was burned by the Pine Creek Fire 9/2012 but will be re-seeded spring 2013.
