Description of Property Click To View

The Mill Creek Mountain Range is currently used as a summer pasture for horses that are used on high mountain grazing allotments.  The live water and hard grass make this a low-worry horse pasture.  The terrain consists of open range land intermingled with patches of timber at an elevation that ranges from about 8,450’ to 8,660’.

This is a very scenic property with several ideal sites where one could build a cabin or park a camper trailer. At present, there are no buildings or improvements on the property. The east end of this property borders the Bighorn National Forest giving direct access to thousands of acres of national forest lands and limitless recreational opportunities.

The Medicine Lodge Lakes and Paint Rock Lakes offer rainbow and brook trout fishing while nearby mountain creeks offer cutthroat and brook trout fishing. Other popular activities include camping, canoeing, ATV-riding, horseback riding, hiking, wildlife observation, and hunting.

Elk cross through the property as well as all the neighboring country.  This would be an excellent property to set up your mountain hunting base camp.

This 120 deeded-acre property has Mill Creek flowing through the center of the property for ~1/2 mile.  Mill Creek is a small mountain stream that runs clear over small gravels.  Mill Creek is just one of the mountain streams that flow off the west side of the Bighorn Mountains into the gorgeous Paint Rock Creek and ultimately the Nowood River.

Mill Creek is on the northern reach of the Paint Rock Creek watershed.  Trapper Creek to the north flows into the Shell Creek basin.  An informative article on the topography of the western Bighorn Mountain drainages is available:
