Visitor Tips and News About Gravity Ramp
Travel westbound on I-8 and exit at the Mountain Springs off ramp. Stop at the bottom of the ramp at the stop sign, put it in neutral, and be amazed as you roll back up the ramp. Probably the same phenomenon as the gravity-defying effects on the road to the tower. Also, as you proceed eastbound on I-8, towards the bottom of the hill, you will see the remnants of the white rock-lined trail to "Mountain Springs", which was a rusty pile of leaf springs, etc![Patrick, 05/20/2007]
Exercise caution here -- though this area is sparsely populated, plenty of cars are barreling along the interstate.
