Visitor Tips and News About Gravity Hill
Totally worked! The start line is a little faded, so in the rain it is hard to see. Just drive up to that start line, put your car in N and your car will go up the hill. It almost seemed like we weren't going to make it all the way over, but somehow we did.[Brittany Hanson, 10/30/2016]
It was a long ways out of the way but we gave it a try thinking it was a newer post. It wasn't that hard to find and the "start" sign was visibly written across the pavement but ... No matter how many times or different ways we tried it. This was a complete bust, gravity won. There was no optical illusion, it simply didn't work.[Tevera, 09/30/2013]
About ten miles or so outside of Prosser. Take North Crosby Road out of town, past Rotha Road (a private road) and McClure Road. It will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Around 101204 North Crosby Road you will see a gray barn -- the only structure around -- and shortly after that you will see "Start" written on the road in white paint (on the other side of the road). Turn your car around so you are now facing the barn (it is uphill from you) and pull up to the start line. Put your car in neutral and you will roll uphill toward the barn.
While it takes awhile to get out there, it's pretty cool. We went on December 29 and the blacktop looked fairly new, but the Start was clearly painted. So it's obviously kept up.[Cat, 01/02/2013]
