This fairly easy hike is a wonderful introduction to the wild and lonely Loomis State Forest, some of Washington’s least-known public lands. Back in the 1990s, most of this wild country nearly succumbed to the chain saw. But thanks to a well-funded and well-publicized campaign spearheaded by Conservation Northwest, 25,000 acres of the Loomis was reclassified as a Natural Resource Conservation Area (NRCA). Home to lynx, wolverine, the occasional grizzly, and a plethora of wildflower species, there’s nothing disappointing at all about Disappointment Peak.
