Mooresville, Indiana: Gravity Hill

An unnatural effect known by locals. You think you're going downhill, but your car has other ideas. Roll uphill at your own risk!
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.

Car rolls backwards.

Gravity Hill

Once we found Keller Hill Rd off of Hwy 42, it took us a few tries to find the hill, but once we did, we knew it right away! Driving away from Hwy 42, we put the car in neutral at the bottom of the hill and got pulled back up it at a pretty swift pace. We turned around and did it going forward, too (toward Hwy 42), but we thought going backward was the best. The address at the top of the hill (facing Hwy 42) was 705 Keller Hill Rd.

My friend and I just got back from the hill. We put our car in neutral, heading away from Hwy 42 at the smaller hill. We didn't realize for a minute we were being pulled backward, up the small hill. Then we turned the car around to face Hwy 42. We were pulled up the hill, at a very steady speed, all the way to Hwy 42, before we finally put the car in drive! It was unbeliveable. I'm going back to experience it again, now that I understand what to expect.

Gravity Hill - 2-Way Effect

I grew up in Mooresville, Indiana in the 1960s and 70s, and my dad took us on monthly forays to Gravity Hill, which was a little easier to find back then because the land wasn't as developed as it is now. The directions are correct, but according to the information given, it only works going east, but that's not so. It works both ways. If you stop in the middle of the valley, and put your car into neutral, it will roll up hill. If you are going towards SR42, the car will coast nearly all the way to 42.

Yes, Gravity Hill does exist in Mooresville, Indiana. I live about 25 minutes away. It is not marked at all and with so many hills it will be a task to find the right one. Don't give up though, it's there.

The gravity hill in Mooresville is definitely on Keller Hill Road off SR42. I have been there around ten times. I will tell everyone right now that the hill is NOT marked at all. All I can say is you will just have to try the hills. It is approx. a mile in on the road. If you are going away from SR42 it is kind of down in a valley just before a rather large hill and there is a house on the left side and just some trees on the right.

I know it is hard to believe until you have been there once. Trust me, I have had to take numerous people there because they didn't believe me. Good luck!

As always, we advise extreme caution on Gravity Hills, and this one sounds less official than most. Turn on your hazard blinkers. Post an observer outside the car who can watch for approaching cars. Roll uphill at your own risk!
