As ADTech stated, the computer simulations for the reports and coverage are not precisely accurate to the degree you would like; testing will be necessary.

I did three reports using your coordinates at different heights. They indicate that you should get your antenna as high as you can, and you should have reliable reception.

40 feet
25 feet
10 feet

I also did 3 snips from the interactive browser at different heights; see the attachments. Because of the rough terrain and the slightly different locations for the transmitters, the channel listing changes at different heights.
Can the signal make it over the hill?
For some of the channels, my opinion is yes, if you can get your antenna high enough. Tilting the front of the antenna up might help.
