Sonoma, California: Gravity Hill

Put your car in neutral here and watch yourself be pulled backwards, uphill. But don't block traffic, and bring someone along to warn oncoming cars.
3448 Lichau Rd, Sonoma, CA
US 101 exit onto the Rohnert Park Expy. Drive east until it ends, turn right onto Petaluma Hill Rd, make the third left onto Roberts Rd, then the first right onto Lichau Rd. After you pass Cannon Rd (which veers left) you'll come to the crest of a hill. Just over it is a cattle guard across the road. Drive about 100 feet further (to the No Parking sign) and put your car in neutral.
Public road. Hazard flashers recommended. Use at your own risk.
