..Especially if you run up the footpaths like I did. Spectacular scenery and fresh air that will lift you up and fill you with inspiration.

“Always a great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Visitors must go to Signal Hill. Great views and photo ops and a great walk. Everytime I visit I come up to Signal Hil. Definitley a must do in St. JOhn's. Especially when the sun is out - make sure to go because the fog can roll in here at a moments notice and you won't get any good photos!

“wonderful history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Signal Hill is steeped in history and has breathtaking views. Be prepared for high winds and bring warm coats/sweaters for the cold temperatures coming off the ocean.

“Stunning Views, Well Maintained Trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed a chilly trip around the trails at the top of St. John's. The views were spectacular and the grounds are well maintained. There is also a pleasant little gift shop with the Marconi Museum - a great place to take refuge from the wind for a bit.

“Older than the dinosaurs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This was a must see experience while in St-John's. Beautiful views of the Narrows, Cape Spear and the city of St-John's. Surrounded by lovely picturesque trails. Wear good shoes, bring your camera and feast your eyes!
