Dear Friends of Middle Mountain Interpretive Hikes:

The Board of Directors for Middle Mountain Interpretive Hikes is pleased to announce the highly anticipated news that the 2021-2022 Fall/Winter Hiking Season has been unanimously approved. For your information, the list of interpretive/guided open hikes in the majestic Sutter Buttes and its accompanying schedule will be published "on or near the date of October 7, 2021."

Many of you subscribe to the "MMIH E-newsletter" for the receipt of announcements, notifications and updates pertaining to the availability of fall/winter/spring open hikes. If you have not already signed up for the E-Newsletter, now is certainly a good time to do so. The Open Hikes Coordinator will also continue to keep you informed of newly scheduled open hikes right here on the MMIH website.

Thanks again for your understanding and patience during the COVID-19 pandemic!

Have a great summer! We look forward to hiking the Sutter Buttes with you this fall!




With hiking regards,

Middle Mountain Interpretive Hikes
Board of Directors
