Pine-covered Cobb Mountain is a 4,722-foot-tall peak in the Mayacamas Mountain Range, named after John Cobb and family – the first settlers in 1853. A delightfully eccentric community inspirited by the Cobb Mountain Artists, its commercial area features a coffee shop/bookstore combination, restaurants, two golf courses, and magnificent scenery.
Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest offers well-marked interpretive trails – open to dogs (on leash), horses, and mountain bikes. Primitive campsites are available.
Revered for the memories of its resorts surrounding Lake County’s hot springs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Cobb Mountain is still rich with magic and allure.
