The road to get here was great and easy to find. Once there the trails to walk on were very well maintained and great to walk on. We were here for St. Paddy's day so the weather was quite cool and we never got to explore the rest of the trails.

“WINDY”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

If your feeling adventurous walk up signal hill for a start. once your up the parking lot alone offers a fantastic view of the Atlantic, where in May and June icebergs and the occasional whale too. once inside you get history of Signal Hill, including its military usage, and where Marconi sent the first wireless transmission across the Atlantic.

“Beautiful Day or Night!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Signal Hill is so beautiful. Wonderful spot to just take a walk during the summer. Its great to be able to see the Ocean, Harbour and the beautiful city of St. John's and how much it has grown. Its even more beautiful at night!!! Worth the visit!!!

Great experience looking to Ireland from Canada. But, just like government, do not take advantage of their position.

If you like hiking, there are several trails around Signal Hill. They can be challenging however, so be warned.
