Directions to Gravity Hill #1
In Schellsburg, turn North on Route 96 at the traffic light. After driving for about 4 miles you will see a small bridge.Do not cross this bridge but make a left turn on Bethel Hollow Road / S.R. 4016. Drive for 6/10 of a mile and bear left at the "Y" in the road. Stay on the main road. After another 1.5 miles you come to an intersection that has a stop sign for oncoming traffic only. Bear right on this road and travel another 2/10 of a mile, looking for two sets of letters "GH" spray painted on the road. Pass the first "GH" and stop before you come up to the next "GH"
Directions to Gravity Hill #1
There is a second, unmarked Gravity Hill 3/10 of a mile past the second "GH". Look on your right for a telephone pole with the number "69". Stop beside this pole and defy gravity once again! There is an area just down the road where you can turn around.

WARNING. You are on a public road! Obey all traffic signs and rules. Where there are hills there are blind spots. Always bring someone to watch for other traffic. Never try the hill when the road is wet and slippery or during inclement winter weather conditions.
With caution, position your car at a "
bottom" of the hill and put your car in neutral. Take your foot off the brake and you will experience the thrill of your car not only climbing the hill by itself, but gaining speed as it goes. Look out for other traffic.

After trying this natural phenomenon you may question it's causes. Well, we don't want to disappoint you, but whether it is called a Magnetic Hill, Gravity Hill, Mystery Hill or Electric Brae it is an optical illusion. It has nothing to do with magnetic fields, electricity or unknown forces working along mysterious lines.
