Gravity Hill – North Park

461 McKinney Rd, Wexford, PA 15090, United States

Website

Share

Located at the intersection of McKinney Road @ Kummer Rd. Drive up McKinney toward the golf course and stop at the stop sign at Kummer Rd. Put your car in neutral and you will drift backward up the slight hill. This really works, and does not have an apparent reason. This is one of many such “gravity hills” in the state. Optical illusion or something more paranormal? You decide!

This legend actually has its roots in Beaver County, where “Charlie No Face” roamed the roads at night many decades ago. This is a true story, but it is unclear how the folklore traveled from Beaver County to South Park. Also see the listing for “Corvette Tunnel”, which is nearby.Read more…
