Hike Belmont Mound To Discover A Lost Mountain That Shouldn’t Exist In Wisconsin

Long ago, the French named this place in southwestern Wisconsin “beautiful mountain.” Today Belmont Mound is a state park that’s not as well known or as popular as others, but it’s a hidden gem well-worth discovering. The park has some interesting rock formations and a view of the surrounding countryside that can’t be beat. Here’s what’s waiting for you at Wisconsin’s beautiful mountain:

The park is open year-round from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. This park is a little unusual in that it’s not managed by the state Department of Natural Resources — the Belmont Lions Club oversees the property, and there’s no admission sticker needed to visit the park. It’s a day-use park only, so camping is prohibited.
