A 10 minute gentle walk with amazing sites of the narrows, signal hill and the battery. Old simple lighthouse but views from it are spectacular.

We parked at the parking lot and made our way along the trail. You walk by some houses that are along the trail which look so inviting. The views along the trail were so nice and you can peer across the water to look at the trails along the bottom of Signal Hill. Once you get out to the Fort it was so nice just to stand and watch and listen to the waves.

The lighthouse itself isn't anything spectacular but the hike near the trail is really challenging and quite nice. It's nice to see the St. John's Harbour from the "other" side as well so you're looking over at Signal Hill. The area you walk through to get to the lighthouse is really pretty as well with the water and rocks on your left.

We didn't visit, just snagged a view from Signal Hill. Beautiful scenery.

The lighthouse is well kept but unfortunately the site remainder of the site has been allowed to fall into complete ruin and everything except the lighthouse is completely inaccessible. Very big disappointment & would not recommend this attraction to anyone.
