"Steep Hill" is a K.K. Slider song in the Animal Crossing series. It first appears in Doubutsu no Mori e+.

"Steep Hill" has a melancholic tone, and it is based on Shōwa-era Japanese folk rock, known as kayōkyoku. The song's melody is similar to that of "'Ichigohakusho' o Mōichido",[nb 6] a Japanese folk rock song by the group BangBang.
