Judge rules in favor of Indian Creek public access

by Billings Gazette

“Public access to Indian Creek Trail in Madison County has been upheld after U.S. District Court Judge Sam Haddon issued an order on Monday finding that the Forest Service possesses a prescriptive easement across the Wonder Ranch’s property.

The dispute dates back to 2011 when the Beaverhead Deerlodge National Forest placed a claim on Wonder Ranch’s deed after ranch owners put up a sign declaring use of the route was by permission only. The owners of the ranch are identified in court documents as Chris Hudson and Eugenia (Hudson) King.”
