The association is responsible for road maintenance, road snow removal, weed abatement along roadsides, litter control, and safety. Our HOA also provides security other than those services provided by the Gallatin County Sheriff’s Department, architectural control, and enforcement of the protective covenants established in 1995.

Climate & Topography

Located in beautiful southwest Montana, Gallatin River Ranch (GRR) is located in a “banana belt” climate.  With altitudes ranging from 4200ft to over 5200ft on some of the taller peaks, the weather in GRR is much more mild than the surrounding areas of Bozeman, Bridger Canyon, Four Corners and the Gallatin Gateway.  While we do get snow, it is does not typically exceed 12-14″ of precipitation per year.  Our Ranch maintenance team work year around to ensure that our private road system remains accessible.  In an effort to maintain the “old west” feel our roads are not paved, but are smooth and well maintained.

With miles of private trails our residents enjoy extensive opportunities to hike, ride and explore throughout the Ranch and surrounding areas.


The Gallatin River Ranch (GRR) ecosystem is flourishing with beautiful landscape.  Our native sage brush, junipers, cottonwood and cedars backdrop to acres of wild grass and wildflowers.  We have resident herds of deer and antelope.  Following normal migration trails, bugling elk can be herd throughout the Ranch during the rut.  There is no hunting or shooting allowed on the Ranch, allowing for a true sense of protected wildlife and serene viewing.

In addition to our native deer, GRR is home to fox, coyote, the occasional bear and several reptile and small mammal species.  For the birder, GRR is also home to several types of songbirds, raptors, and waterfowl.
