Our third annual 5k Fun Run/Walk was a great success! We had runners & walkers of all ages proudly wearing their new blue t-shirts for the event.. The weather was perfect! We started at Belly's Restaurant at 9am, turned around on Wolf Pond Road, and made it back to the finish line at Belly's. At the finish line, runners and walkers caught their breath, had some water, and took a little time to chat with their friends. Later in the day, many participants, their families, & neighbors got together for a delicious meal and a good time at the Annual Pot Luck Dinner. Beef on Wick was served along with delicious appetizers, salads, and desserts. More pictures of these fun events to be posted in the near future. If you missed it, join us for more fun next summer season!

We need your ongoing support to keep Mountain View Lake

How does it work? We have a very sophisticated and scientific monitoring system. It involves a clock, a clock watcher (Fred Knepperges once again- thank-you) and a platform on which the clock sits. The platform sits on the ice. When the ice melts the platform sinks, the clock becomes unplugged and the official time is recorded.
The person guessing the date and time most accurately, is declared the winner and collects 50% of the money raised. We keep the other half to fund our milfoil eradication program.
Its fun! There's a chance to make big money, and it helps us manage the weeds.

2020 Special Order T-Shirt!
ORDERS DUE BY July 26th
Proceeds will go to support Water Quality Fund
Enjoy the Adirondacks, the community and the lakes.
One’s desire for peace, quiet and solitude is no more or no less important than another’s desire to have fun on the lakes. Being respectful of each other’s desires and finding compromise is part of what makes our little corner of the world so special.
If you’re a boater, and especially the user of a personal watercraft, be mindful of those around you, including those along the shoreline. For all boaters, remember there’s a 5 MPH speed limit within 300 feet of any shoreline in the Town of Belmont. If you rent your property to others, please be sure to let your renters know about these considerations.
