History

Discover the ruins of one of the area’s first European farms. One of the first Europeans to farm the area was William Pedler, a shoemaker whose trade gave rise to the name Cobbler Creek. The ruins of his farmhouse, Trevalsa, can still be seen on the Porosa Hike and the Ruins Loop. Teakles House is another stone ruin, also on the Porosa Hike, the Ruins Loop and the Valley Circuit.
