The 63 Ranch

The 63 Ranch
Dating back to 1863, The 63 Ranch was the first dude ranch in Montana to be declared a National Historic Monument. It straddles Mission Creek Canyon on the border of Gallatin National Forest, 50 miles north of Yellowstone National Park, and has been family-run since 1929. While fishing and hiking are offered, equestrian activities are at the forefront — western riding classes, lassoing lessons, cattle roundups, leisurely rides through wildflowers and expert rides through mountain passes. There are just 15 cabins, housing no more than thirty guests at a time. Family-style meals include grass-fed beef from the ranch's own herd. FYI: BYOB.
