Visitor Tips and News About Gravity Hill
The location of Gravity Hill is on Keller Hill Road, which runs west from SR42 just 1 mile outside of Mooresville, IN. About 1 mile west of the origin at SR42, Keller Hill Road begins to undulate through some "rollers" before actually climbing Keller Hill. While in the middle of these rollers, a driver has an optical illusion that they are going downhill and should be able to coast. However if the car is put into neutral it will tend to slow down or even roll backwards. Thus a mysterious "Magnet" or "Gravity" must be pulling the car. However, there is no downhill section to this rolling stretch of county road -- it's all uphill! Easiest way to be sure, come with me on a bicycle ride up Keller Hill![Larry A.

This is an update on the Gravity Hill supposedly located in Mooresville, IN. I searched in vain this weekend to locate the spot. I asked locals, checked other websites, etc. All leads point to a location south of Mooresville on Keller Hill road. The road is typical of other 'gravity hill' locations: Many hills, some very steep, and almost total absence of the horizon. I drove from one end of the road to the other, and tried many of the hills. No good. I'm not suggesting that it is not here, only that it is not clearly marked. I did notice a street off of Keller Hill road suspiciously named 'Magnetic Acres.' Maybe this is some clue. If anyone has more info on this particular site, I would like to hear about it.[Steve C.

- Keller Hill Rd, Mooresville, IN
- I-70 exit 59. One mile south on Hwy 39, then left onto Keller Hill Rd. Drive Keller Hill Rd east 4.5 miles until it ends at Hwy 42, then make a U-turn and drive back west on Keller Hill Rd for one mile. The anti-gravity apparently only occurs eastbound, one mile in from Hwy 42. It is NOT marked, but just before you reach the large silo on the right, line up your car with the large old tree on the right.
- Public road. Hazard flashers recommended. Use at your own risk.
