Such an important part of Canadian history. Can't go to St. John's and not get up there. Despite the height of the Hill, it's very walkable from downtown.

This is a must-see for anyone going to St. Johns. It is the farthest point east on the North American continent. The scenery is truly amazing and there are hiking trails to enjoy the ocean views even more!

What a beautiful spot to get out and enjoy the day! We went out and were we ever glad we took our camera. The views are spectacular and it was so very relaxing to sit out and enjoy the sunshine.

As the most easterly part of Canada, a must do, with great scenery, and not expensive to go into the lighthouse, set up as in the 1850's or so.

We had a very foggy day, but again the views were brilliant!!! Don't let a little bit of rain stop a visit.
