As this is our 21st visit to the 9 Quarter Circle Ranch, it is clear that this is our family's favorite vacation. There is no better vacation for parents and kids to share together. First, the scenery/location is stunning. Five miles back in a beautiful valley off the main highway. Trust me, you cant lose your kids here! The horseback riding is very tailored to the individual family member: 0-5 (all-day babysitters and the kids will ride a horse), 6-10 (roughriders) and then three different levels of rides for 11+. I love to flyfish and there is no better stream than the Talylor Fork that runs through the ranch and empties into the Gallatin River, one of Montana's best. And the mountain biking opportunities are endless. One price covers the week so no decisions to make.

You may also enjoy hiking the area, viewing wildlife and wildflowers in abundance and you can even bring a bike to explore some awesome mountain trails! In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in many other traditional activities such as campfire, hayrides, square dance and more! In addition to all of these benefits, our on-site fly-fishing guide, the children’s programs, meals, and much more are all included in your stay! These all combine to create a unique and ideal location for your vacation. Owned and operated by the Kelsey family for over 60 years, the Nine Quarter Circle is “magical”.
