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 perfect for a leisurely drive or bike ride. Guided hikes through the interior of the Buttes are offered exclusively by Middle Mountain Interpretive Hikes. For a complete listing of available hikes and to register, please visit them at
