This is one of the best hike/climbs in the central valley
Looks good now
You might want to review your vote on this page (see my comments).
I have adopted the page and removed the offending plagerism in an attempt to save the page from deletion. Not a quality page yet, but hopefully not worthless.
Much better. Thanks, CH
I adopted the Sutter Buttes page. Have just made a few minor changes for right now, but plan on going up there soon to obtain some first-hand information. Taking off my name from the votes page might appease those crazy people that would call it a conflict of interest or something like that, if you'd be so kind :)
Glad to see you take this one and improve on it. (shhh, the view from the top at night is pretty nice)
Interesting small mountains Any oaks on the slopes?
The Sutter Buttes were federal land, and were settled prior to survey. As a result, the original federal surveys show pre-existing roads. There is a lot more legal access to the Buttes than is acknowledged. See Western Aggregates v. County of Yuba 101 Cal. App 4th 278 for the legal theory.
State Parks seems to have political inhibition to asserting the public's right access on the existing road from North Butte Road to the park property.
Middle Mountain Foundation (which is a neighboring landowner) and other neighboring landowners don't want a park, and don't want any access other than their own.
There are no peaks in the park - it is a valley and rolling hills. MMF owns North Butte; the Davis family owns South Butte; Peter Steidlmayer owns West Butte; The Laney/Coats family owns Two Sisters; and so it goes.
By the way, what is involved in babysitting this page? I have had a long term relationship with the Buttes, own a small interest (therefore have a key to some gates)
Diggler or whoever, contact me privately, if interested in some help.
I've tried emailing as well as PMing you, to no avail as of yet. If you get this, please contact me- I'd love to discuss this further with you.
In case you did not know there are well organized, safe and legal ways to get into the Sutter Buttes. The Yuba Historical Society will be leading hikes through the mountain from the end of February through May 2008. Here you will visit some of the places shown in the photographs on this page. In addition each trip will be led by experienced guides who will tell you everything you need to know about this fascinating mountain. There is a charge for these excursions, but a majority of the people who come on their first hike return for another one. You can phone me at 530-741-0509.
