Event Description:
Through archival photos, learn about the ranching history of the South and West Fork areas. 

The Crail Ranch grounds are open during daylight hours for walking tours, picnicking or connecting onto our trail system via the Crail Ranch Trail. Established as a homestead by Augustus Franklin Crail in 1902, and occupied by Crail family members for nearly half a century, the Historic Crail Ranch remains as a tangible reminder of the life of the earliest settlers in the Big Sky area. For nearly 50 years, the Crail family ranched on this land, raising sheep, cattle, hay and wheat, and eventually expanding their holdings to 960 acres. When Chet Huntley and his group came to the area in the late 1960s, the Crail Ranch buildings and property were among the first that they purchased for their planned Big Sky Resort.
