At the end of 2004 Greenbridges began managing the York Gulch Ranch. The 1,520 acres consist of rolling foot hills that meld into the vast Beaverhead National Forest. The Big Hole River is across a gravel road from the entrance to the ranch.

The York Gulch Ranch varies greatly in its habitat and landscape. Its gentle rolling hills host irrigated meadows as well as sage brush and pine trees. The York Gulch, where the ranch gets its name, is a small stream originating in the National Forest above the ranch which is used for irrigating. It has a native population of 100% pure West Slope Cutthroat Trout, a fish of special concern in Montana. The recreational opportunities on this ranch are innumerable with access to the neighboring Forest Services' miles of rarely used trails and roads, as well as world class fishing found on the Big Hole River adjacent to the ranch.

Located in Southwestern Montana

The York Gulch Ranch is in the Big Hole Valley close to the town of Wisdom and 3 and a half miles from the Anaconda Pintler Wilderness Area.

Improved grazing management has been a focal point of Greenbridges' management of the York Gulch Ranch. By reducing cattle numbers and keeping stock away from sensitive riparian areas, we hope to improve the health of the ranch and the York Gulch stream. We worked with the Natural Resource Conservation Service to conduct a Riparian Assessment which helped us to understand the individual complexities of these locations. We are participating in the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks CCAA for Artic Grayling and will install headgates to increase control of our irrigation and enhance habitat for Fluvial Arctic Grayling.
