ROADSIDE MICHIGAN: Vehicles Roll UPhill Near Rose City!
Michigan has it's share of 'gravity' related places...Mystery Hill, Mystery Spot, etc....and also a few locations that are nicknamed "Gravity Road" or "Gravity Hill."
Well, this is one of 'em.
The actual name of this hill is Reasner Road, east of Higgins Lake and a couple miles northeast of Rose City (SEE PHOTOS ABOVE FOR LOCATION). What's the big deal? Just put your car in neutral and it will roll uphill.
It's a dirt road, not heavily-trafficked so it shouldn't be too hard for you to test it yourself. However, there is a sign that reads: "CAUTION: No stopping or backing up on the road." Once you see that sign, you know you're on the right stretch of road.
Seems to me, if the road commission didn't want you to do it, they wouldn't let you know where it was, right? Duh. But the sign does make sense, because going uphill, you take the chance of someone coming over the other side of the hill and (not knowing you were on the other side) smashing into you.
So if you DO attempt this, it's a wise thing to take cellphones and have someone stand on top of the hill looking for oncoming traffic.
Take a look at the photo gallery above for photos of the road's location and others of a vehicle going uphill.
In fact, take a look at the video below of a vehicle going backwards up the hill! We have so many cool things to see and do in Michigan and we've only just scratched the surface...!
