Booger Hill in Cumming, Georgia

According to the legend, in 1850s two black slaves were accused of raping and murdering a white girl. They hid her body in the woods north of Cumming, Georgia. Slave owners and Ku Klux Klan members got together and kidnapped the black slaves from their master's home, took them into the woods, and hung them from two giant oak trees next to each other. Eventually, their bodies were buried in an undisclosed location n those woods.

Bettis-Tribble Gap Road cuts in between those two giant oak trees where the slaves were hung. If you park your car (facing north) in the middle of the two oaks, turn off your headlights and put your car in neutral and let your car travel down the hill.

Once you're completely down the hill, your car will make a complete stop and then slowly be pushed backwards up the hill while it is still in neutral. People believe that it is the spirits of the slaves trying to keep you out and if they push you past the oak trees again you're doomed to die on your way home.

If you put flour on the hood of your car you will be able to see the hand prints of the ghosts and hear the ghosts whisper.


Location

Take Tribble Gap Road north past Dunn Road (on the right. Drive past the two oak trees that "hang over the road" from both directions. You will see telephone poles running across a field at a 90 degree angle to the road. Line your right front tire with the last telephone pole on your right.
