Experience Belmont

4 Wheeler - Pecatonica Trail

Belmont is the perfect picture of history and recreation for your next get-away!  Belmont came by its name Belle Monte, French for “beautiful hill.” The Village of Belmont as it lies today is just miles from its original location when it was the First Capitol of the Wisconsin Territory. Be sure to explore the Wisconsin State Historic Site for a flashback to what frontier Wisconsin looked like.   Just minutes away is the Belmont Mound State Park where you can explore scenic walking trails, rock formations and nature at its best.  The Mound offers beautiful panoramic countryside views and fantastic sights of the Driftless area, especially in the fall of the year.   Belmont is home to both the Mound View State Trail and Pecatonica State Trial.  Whether you prefer to bike or ATV, Belmont is a great starting point to both trail beds.   

The Village of Belmont is home to a French specialty cheese factory that produce brie, camembert, and feta which is distributed worldwide. It also boasts one of the area’s largest greenhouse operations. With direct access to the four-lane highway, Belmont is one of the fastest-growing communities in southwest Wisconsin.  When you are ready to unwind, our beautiful downtown welcomes you for a bite to eat or refreshments.  Check out our parks and murals, too! 

The Belmont School and Community Fair, Wisconsin’s oldest fair (and still free) is held the second weekend after Labor Day each year. It includes a livestock show, carnival, kid’s games, horse show, and parade.
