Meet at Gridley McDonald's (Map)
More vigorous hiking, some elevation gain/loss
Shaeffer Ranch is on the north side of the Buttes. Hikers will explore this ranch that has been in the same family since the 1860s. There are possible views of North Butte, Peace Valley, and the old Titan Missile site. Bring binoculars along with lunch and water. Be aware that you will be driving another 12-15 miles to the hike's starting point from the meeting place in Gridley. No early departures on this trip.
Ty is a fourth-generation landowner in the Sutter Buttes. He has developed an interest in geology as well as the flora and fauna in the Buttes. Ty enjoys sharing his acquired knowledge with hikers, especially information about Native Americans, his family's footprints in the Buttes and hopefully an appreciation for the smallest mountain range in the world.
