THE SUTTER BUTTES

The World's Smallest Mountain Range

Dear Friends of Middle Mountain Interpretive Hikes:

MMIH has made the difficult decision, based on the current COVID-19 statistics for the local Yuba-Sutter community, to cancel its 2020-21 fall-winter hiking season in the Sutter Buttes.

MMIH will certainly miss spending the next five months with its wonderful group of dedicated hikers!

Please note, if COVID-19 cases lessen safely enough and barring any other unforeseen circumstances beyond its control, MMIH will definitely be offering a 2021 spring-hiking season.

In the meantime, stay healthy and safe!

With great hiking regards,

The MMIH Board

 

There are three ways to experience the Sutter Buttes:
A driving or cycling tour around them; Middle Mountain Interpretive Hikes or outings;
or a visit to the Sutter County Museum.

DRIVING TOUR

INTERPRETIVE HIKES

OR OUTINGS

SUTTER COUNTY

MUSEUM

People are drawn to the Sutter Buttes, whether they live in the area or are just passing through. They are a ten-mile wide circle of volcanic peaks that are dramatically isolated in the center of the Sacramento Valley.

There are a series of county roads that circle the Sutter Buttes and Pass Road actually goes through them on the south side. The loop is about 45 miles. There is no other public access. There are no hiking trails, picnic areas, or public parks.

Middle Mountain Interpretive Hikes offers guided interpretive outings on several properties in the interior of the Sutter Buttes. These outings are held from late October through early-May. They are posted on this website in early October for the Fall Season and early February for the Spring. Outings are $35 per person unless otherwise stated in the description. To sign up, email or call 530-370-4777 and leave a message.

The Sutter County Museum has a wealth of information about the Sutter Buttes, as well as a relief map which allows close study of the peaks and valleys. The Museum is located at 1333 Butte House Road in Yuba City.  (530) 822-7141  email    Website
