Bordering the Pasayten Wilderness to the west and British Columbia's Snowy Mountain Provincial Park to the north, the Loomis is within good company and it deserves your attention. This is a land of incredible diversity. the transition zone between the Cascades and the Okanogan Highlands. Rare fauna, much flora, and a handful of endangered flowering plants can be found here. One of the easiest and more rewarding hikes in the Loomis is the 21.2mile trip around the Disappointment Creek Basin. Despite the name, you won't be. Following an old mine road, the trail winds its way to a 7160 foot summit on the shoulder of Chopaka Mountain, referred to locally as Disappointment Peak.
