Just outside of Billings, Belfry–on the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River–was created by the construction of the Yellowstone Park Railroad during Montana's coal-mining boom, and is now mainly an agricultural community. It is, however, an unexpected spot for an authentic western ranch getaway. The beautiful Beartooth River Ranch sits at the base of the Beartooth Mountains, just 20 miles to the west of Red Lodge and an hour from Yellowstone National Park, and is a popular spot for weddings. Or, visit the Beartrap Ranch for a luxury ranch stay in the heart of Montana's pristine wilderness.
