Historical stop at the top of the hill. Quite foggy when there, but still had some views. Expect it to be windy. Plenty of walking trails along the hills or down to The Narrows.

Such a great place to enjoy scenic vistas and explore various trails. We were a little early in the season so the visitor centre wasn't open, but still lots of history posted along the Lookout Trail in the vicinity. And the views - wow!

A very cold place to walk to in winter! But views were amazing ! Covered in white it was quite magical !!
It was a shame the geo tech museum was not open as that would have complimented this signal
Hil . Signs around the area were great though with the history !!

We went twice to signal hill. The first time was part of a tour and we went back the 2nd time on foot using the coastal trail. For those who wants to use the trail, make sure you have good walking shoes, water and snacks.

Hiking the Trails gives you a better view of the beauty of the landscape. We hiked daily. The breeze of the ocean keeps you cool.
This pic is from the other side of the harbour...magnificent!!!

Do the full hike along the water before heading up. Then head to Quidi Vidi for lunch/dinner and walk back downtown for an excellent calorie burner. We did over 20 km the day we did this.

Our visit to Signal Hill was part of a half day tour with McCarthy's Party. It was one of the highlights of our visit to St. John's.

Besides the magnificent views of the City and harbour, Signal Hill is a very historic site in the history of telecommunications. Excellent guide provided details about the work of Marconi and the Hill's involvement with local shipping and international disasters like the Titanic. It gets very windy so do wear a fleece even on a sunny day!
