Excellent View, Great History
Feb 2021
My friend and I came here during the afternoon on a weekday, in Feb 2021.

Reading about the history and walking around the area was really cool. We walked a bit of the Ladies Lookout trail but the other trails around were closed due to the weather. There were many boards with historical facts and pictures on them, which I found really interesting! Lastly, there was free parking close to Cabot Tower which is perfect if you aren't up to walking uphill to get there.

Overall, a must see when you're in St John's!

Signal Hill trails a walk for walkers!
Jun 2020 • Family
We walked the trail on Signal Hill taking us down to walk in thru the narrows! Rough and rugged over the rocks with board walk and steps at times! Beautiful on a day with not alot of wind! Took us about an hour to loop in around the Battery homes and back up to Signal Hill.

Stunning views
Aug 2020
We visited Signal Hill one afternoon, actually the same afternoon that we had visited Cape Spear in the morning. It was very busy with lots of traffic and people mulling about. It was a sunny afternoon and not to breezy which made it quite enjoyable. The views are stunning on a nice day. To be able to see Cape Spear in the distance, the panorama of the city of St. John's can be breath-taking on such a nice day. Highly recommend a visit especially if it is a beautiful sunny day.

Really enjoyed the visit to Signal Hill. Great history lesson with beautiful views of the Harbour and the city . It was very cool and windy but didn’t dampen our visit . Easy access nice hiking trails with varying degrees of difficulty. Highly recommended in your visit to St John’s

Aside from the history lesson the view is spectacular. Hiking trails, and a gift shop. At the base there is an eco center /museum. Fun for a family.

Beautiful views, very windy. Took us about 30 minutes to visit. Lots of history to take in. There are hiking trails there as well but we did not go.
