Gravity Hill

There is a utility pole that we put a red flag on. That is where you want to be. Going east will put you on the direction you will be rolling.

I put my Lincoln navigator in neutral at the dip where Keller Hill meets Jessup Place, and it definitely rolled up hill towards 42. Then I went back and put it in neutral up at address 705 on top of the hill, and coasted all the way to 42. A narrow and busy road. I'd suggest using your flashers and being as courteous as possible.

Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful at experiencing this phenomenon. Just a heads up, the road was extremely busy while trying to find the spot. Locals are not very patient while trying to whiz down the road. Hope you have better luck than we did!

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.
