We are located at the 28 mile marker on the North Fork Road, about 31 miles north
of Columbia Falls,
about 9 miles north of where the Camas Road (a Glacier National Park road and entrance)
dead ends into the North Fork Road.
Driving the North Fork Road is an ever changing experience. The views of the river,
the national forest and into Glacier National Park are just wonderful.
Around every bend you encounter evidence of changes in our natural environment.
The North Fork was impacted in 2003 and 2001 by huge forest fires.
While devastating on one hand, the forest fires are proof of the balances nature
enforces on all of us.
You will drive through large forests untouched by the recent fires and through areas
only now beginning their long cycle of re growth.
The North Fork Road can be accessed from its source in Columbia Falls.
You may also start up the road from the end of the Camas Road inside Glacier National
Park. Much of the road is gravel but the Home Ranch Bottoms is located on a stretch
of black top (no dust).
The "bottoms" is a corridor for wildlife movement.
As bears, elk, wolves, moose and lions move in search of food many of them use the
"bottoms" as their travel path. In the winter the "bottoms" is host to an awesome
herd of elk and enjoy the sanctuary of the large privately owned ranch next door.
