Pass Road is the only road that passes completely over the Sutter Buttes. It passes over the southern side of them, through Moore Canyon and Brockman Canyon, south of South Butte and the other major peaks. It runs between Acacia Avenue in northern Sutter and North Meridian Road on the east bank of the Sacramento River at Moon Bend.

Pass Road is one of only six roads that cross the Sutter Bypass; the others are Highway 20, Highway 113, Franklin Road, Hughes Road, and Kirkville Road.

The West Butte Bike Route follows Pass Road and Acacia Avenue between the intersection of Pass Road and West Butte Road in West Butte and Close True Value Lumber Company on Acacia Avenue in Sutter.
