Gravity Hill

Gravity Hill

Physical Address:  3999 County Road U, Shullsburg, WI 53586 (Lafayette County)

Description: One of the weirdest places in Wisconsin, Gravity Hill is a hill with a slightly downward slope that feels like an upward one.  The optical illusion is created by the surrounding land, making it seem that a car in neutral will actually roll uphill.  You have to experience this to believe it!  There is a “sign” at this location, but no other major clues.  PARENTS/GUARDIANS ONLY:  With caution, position your car at a “bottom” of the hill, and put it in neutral.  (Recent reports indicate that the best place to start is in line with the yellow road sign.)  Take your foot off the brake for a moment, and you will experience the thrill of your car not only climbing the hill by itself, but gaining speed as it goes. BE ALERT FOR OTHER TRAFFIC!   WARNING. This is 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.  Take your selfie with your vehicle in a safe location on the side of the hill.  For added fun, take a bottle of water with you, and when you take your selfie, pour a little bit of water onto the hill and snap a pic of it spill UPHILL.
