Great spot overlooking St. John's. Lots of good trails to wall up from downtown or Quidi Vidi but there is a road if you prefer.

The views at the top of signal hill are absolutely spectacular! It was quite windy and cold, but absolutely worth it! Unfortunately, the tower was closed for the season, but still worth the trip!

Make sure you take a walk along the paths to see all the amazing views into downtown St. John's and out into the narrows.

Spent a fabulous afternoon hiking around Signal Hill. Views are beautiful and the steps make this a much easier hike than it looks at first glance.

I have been visiting this place my whole life as I am local but still loves it. At night you can overlook the whole city lit up. Great building to visit and hike around. Also great to take pictures

As a local I go up here al the time. It's the spot for a great view of the city and the ocean (wether day or night). Though I mostly hike around on the paths during the warmer months. Just be careful of some edges (not recommended for young children and dogs). And dress for the wether, lol it is... More

Although there was a heavy fog,we thoroughly enjoyed the small museum,and especially the movie presented to give the historical relevance of the hill.
