Cumming, Georgia: Booger Hill

A gravity hill: Ghosts that haunt the burial ground of enslaved people don't want visitors, so they pull your car back up the road. And leave hand prints.

Bettis Tribble Gap Rd, Cumming, GA
From center of Cumming: Take Tribble Gap Road north out of town. Drive past Dr. Dunn road on your right drive past the two oak trees that "hang over the road" from both directions you'll see telephone poles running across the field at at a 90 degree angle to Tribble Gap Road. Line up the last telephone pole on your right with your right front tire, stop and put the vehicle in neutral. Use safety flashers and watch out for approaching traffic!

Booger Hill

I grew up miles from this stop. My entire life it's not Booger Hill -- it's Booger Mountain. Just thought I would clear that up, considering I am a Forsyth county native.

Booger Hill

Very busy road in the daytime. Dangerous to try due to heavy traffic....but...even in broad daylight, once the traffic died down for a few worked! Really weird. The car actually picked up speed as it went UP the hill! I really want to try it at night. It's probably safer then since the headlights from other cars will make oncoming traffic more noticeable. It's a dangerously busy road...but worth the wait! It's very cool. the only thing was the snowmen decorations on the neighboring field make the whole thing more funny than scary. More creepy at night I'm sure.

Booger Hill will freak you out! I know there must be a scientific explanation for it. But seeing your car roll up a hill in neutral is messed up. To be sure, even though it's been nearly twenty years since I saw my Jeep roll up Booger Hill, it still freaks me out to this day.

I have lived in Cumming, GA my whole life. I am 19 years old. My friends and I went to Booger Hill tonight. It was about 1:15 a.m, and we followed the directions and stopped in the direction of coming from town. We then put the car in neutral and turned the lights off. We actually started rolling back pretty fast -- we were on flat ground, then the kid in the back and I were looking in front of us and noticed eyes on top of the hill on the left side of the road. When the car stopped, we got out and went past where we saw the eyes and there was nothing, no reflectors or anything. The eyes kept disappearing when we saw them and then we would see them again.

We got to the end of Tribble and decided that we wanted to try it from the other direction, so we did. Once again we got pushed up the hill but this time we didn't hear anything, but we heard things tapping on the back glass, then we realized this was scary as crap and got the heck out of there.

My friends and I headed down there the other night. We found the road ok but finding the spot was hard, because the road was dark. I recommend checking it out during the day then going back at night. We had the brights on, again not a good idea, we got pulled over -- so yeah, don't turn on the brights. We drove away to a gas station where I saw a flour hand print on the car, where none of us had touched so I don't know what to call it, but we're definitely going back to check it out again.
