  • We were on a bus tour and our bus driver did quite an excellent job on the narrow twisty road and an even more superb job in neutral going pretty fast up the hill--really neat.  more »
  • We went to check out gravity hill, the hill was intriguing... It really looks like you are going up hill... The only thing is that there is only one sign at the end of the road, once you are on the ro...  more »
  • The way to do it, is you stop at the white line, put your car in neutral and roll and let your car roll backward. There is a billboard advertisement on the PA Interstate about this. Maybe, you just kn...  more »

  • We drove there twice and none of the six of us had the impression of driving up while driving down or the other way around. We even tried neutral as instructed. We're puzzled why there would be handouts at the tourist information. Absolutely not worth the 30 minute drive from the old Bedford village. It doesn't seem to be a tourist thing either because there is no bar or restaurant that would turn this into a pun of sorts.
  • A neat optical illusion and a good science lesson for the kids. Well off the beaten path and after you've seen it, the moment is over. Best part is that there is no gift shop on the way out. It's free. On to the next covered bridge that looks like the last covered bridge.
  • Going in one direction it looks like you are driving down hill. We stopped in the middle of the hill, put car in neutral and we did coast backwards up the hill. Went a ways. Turned around and went back the same way and the hill disappeared. It was really down hill?
  • BEST TOURIST HOT SPOT OF THE YEAR. ME AND MY FINACE ARE GETTING MARRIED HERE. IT'S AMAZING. OUR CAR WENT UPHILL, THE WATER WE HAD WENT UP HILL, WE EVEN ROLLED A COIN. WE ROLLED UP A HILL!!
  • This is something you must experience for yourself!!!
