More vigorous hiking, some elevation gain/loss More vigorous hiking, some elevation gain/loss


You see the outline of the Sutter Buttes from nearly all the roads running up and down our great valley - now it's time to see them from the inside. Spend a special day hiking in a place like no other - lose your sense of time as we explore the hills and valleys of the old Dean Place and earn spectacular views of the valley around us. We'll check out the birds wintering in the hills, see the unique geology of this extinct volcano, and look for signs of the many creatures that live in the Sutter Buttes. Be sure to bring binoculars, lunch, water, and sturdy boots/shoes and hiking sticks, if you have them. No early departures on this trip. Be aware that you will be driving another 12-15 miles to the hike's starting point from the meeting place in Gridley.
