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.

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.

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!

Signal Hill is a nice place to stay. The view over the harbor and the town of St. John's are very good. But where there is a parking in this town?

A better view awaits you at Cape Spear...
Not a hike to be attempted by the faint of heart.
Appreciate the explanatory signs littered a little throughout the site: always helps to put historical significance within a context.
Worhwhile if you want to get a good shot of St Johns Cityscape for your photo album.
