Covington, Kentucky: Gravity HillOne of a number of otherwise unremarkable roads where the forces of gravity have apparently gone haywire.
- Ridgeway Court, Covington, KY
- Drive through Devou Park until you get to River Hill St. Drive uphill on River Hill St. until it bends sharply right (and turns into Ridgeway Court). You'll see a high cement wall and a line of telephone poles on the left. Drive to the second pole, put your car in neutral, and coast uphill. This is a public, neighborhood road; be respectful of the residents, and check carefully for other traffic.
Visitor Tips and News About Gravity Hill
This was seriously a waste of time -- and in a maze of tight roads through a very upscale neighborhood. I got the impression from the ladies walking by that they did not appreciated the tourists stopping there. There were eight of us in the vehicle and not one of us thought this was the least bit interesting, water nor vehicle goes uphill, it goes downhill, just the way it should. There is a wall beside the road with a slight grade to it, which may for some give an optical illusion (?) but we didn't see it.[SH, 07/10/2013]
Sorry that your visit was a bust. Mysterious forces can be unpredictable and frustrating!
It worked! Follow your nav to get there. All the street names have changed.[Nicole, 05/15/2013]
We literally just left Gravity Hill and it seriously did work! We didn't test the water running up hill, but we did drive it twice.[Ashley, 09/23/2012]
Located near Devou Park is Covington's gravity hill. Every time friends or family come to Cincinnati I bring them here and it blows their mind. It really freaks them out when I jump outside and run alongside my truck. I've even gotten out and poured out a bottle of water and it runs uphill.[RAYDD, 08/14/2012]
It would also freak us out if you jumped out and ran alongside, even if it wasn't on a gravity hill. Please stop that!
