The Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest off Hwy. 175 in the Cobb Mountain area is a good example of Lake County's mountainous terrain. The birding is sometimes sparse here but is a great place to hike. Fee for camping, no reservations. 20 campsites. Entrance to the forest is 1.2 miles past the town of Cobb as you head north on Hwy. 175. There is no sign right at the entrance, but a few yards before the turn-off is a blue sign that reads "State Fire Station". Turn right just past this sign and head into the forest. Stop at the main office if you would like a map of all the hiking trails and campgrounds.
