Geocache Description:

This cache is located off of Bethal Hollow Rd. near New Parris, PA. While you are there enjoy the excitment of Gravity Hill.

THERE IS A LETTER BOX LOCATED WITH-IN FEET OF THIS CACHE...PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LOCATED THE CACHE AND NOT THE LETTER BOX What is it... Gravity Hill is a phenomenon. Cars roll uphill, water flows the wrong way ... it's a place where gravity has gone haywire. Why it happens, nobody knows for sure. A few speculate that it's nothing more than an optical illusion. Others are certain that there is a definite gravity warp in the earth that causes this strange occurrence. But, whatever the reason, you can tell your friends that you've made it to the often talked about, but seldom found, Gravity Hill. What to do when you get there? Look for the letters "GH" spray-painted on the road. Go past the first "GH" about .1 mile (40° 06.677N / 78° 41.574W) and stop before you get to the second spray painted "GH". This is it. You have arrived. Stay calm ... keep cool. As you strain your ears to hear the laws of physics being shattered, put your car in neutral (after checking behind you for oncoming traffic, of course) and take your foot off the brake. Your car will roll, uphill.
Some people like to take water or various other non-flammable, biodegradable liquids and pour them onto the road. The liquids will flow uphill.
(Your car might lie to you, but pure water will not ... you will believe in the power of Gravity Hill!)

See the hint for detailed driving instuctions.

PLEASE REHIDE IT AS GOOD OR BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT Please do your part and pick up any litter on your travels - Thanks!
