“Awesome views”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Signal Hill does not take long to visit, but the views are worth it. We saw some people walking to it, but I would definitely drive up there, rather than walk. The views of the Atlantic and the harbor were so picture perfect. I enjoyed it and would say it should be on everyone's to-do list when visiting St. John's.

“A beautiful hike”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

This was one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever taken. We took the advice of our B&B hostess and started from Quidi Vidi, taking Cockell's Cove path through to SIgnal Hill and then walking down the path from Signal Hill, rather than walking up to Signal Hill. It was great advice (there are lots of stairs).

Beautiful, breathtaking sights. Should have done it twice during our stay.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Hike the North Head Trail and get a unique perspective from those that just drive to the top. Beautiful and free to enter Cabot Tower. It's windy so watch your cap!

“Best View of St Johns”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Full of history and a great view of St Johns. We opted not to go inside the castle, but did enjoy a beautiful and very windy day outside. A must see if visiting St Johns.

“awesome views”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

It's hard to beat the views from Signal Hill in St. John's, NL as you gaze out over the Atlantic ocean on one side and St. John's harbour on the other. Cape Spear is visible in the distance. The Johnson Geo-Centre is just down the hill and the vibrant city of St. John's is only a few minutes drive away. Don't miss this historic site.
