Fort Gaines, Georgia: Gravity Hill

Defying the laws of gravity and common sense, vehicles appear to roll up a hill.

Days Ave., Fort Gaines, GA
Take Hwy 39 about seven miles north out of Fort Gaines. Turn east onto CR 135/Days Ave. (look for the sign for Clay Hill Christian Retreat) and drive two miles east (you'll cross CR 50). Stop at the bottom of the hill near the curve sign. Turn your vehicle around to face back west. Put in neutral and coast uphill. Use flashers and watch for approaching traffic!
Public road. Hazard flashers recommended. Use at your own risk. Local health policies may affect hours and access.

Gravity Hill

We rode around and tried to search for the gravity hill but never found it. Then I saw where you have additional hints from visitors that have more exact directions. Highly recommend you look at that first.

The spot is located a little past the house with the shagreen top. It worked for cars and not people.

We've tried many "gravity hills" and most don't seem to work -- but we were very surprised with this one. It worked going forward and backward. Very exciting! Note about directions: It's Days Road that crosses highway 39; don't waste time, as we did, looking for Days Cross Road.

We just visited Gravity Hill and the kids loved it. We stopped at the bottom of the hill, turned off the van and put it in neutral. It was very quiet and eerie. Then all of a sudden the van started to creep up the hill and gain speed.

It was the best attraction on our way down to Florida. The kids will forever remember Gravity Hill.

Gravity Hill

Between Ft. Gaines and Georgetown, if you turn to the right onto a country road, there is a hill that you can roll up. Yes, ROLL UP! You can park you vehicle at the bottom of the hill, turn it off, put in neutral, and you will begin to roll up the hill and on and on for a few miles.
