We walked up from town. A great hike and beautiful scenery. The view from the top is awesome. There are several hiking trails around the hill, so you can spend a good bit of time exploring. We went back up in the evening because there...More

I was fortunate enough to visit on a perfect summer day. The views were amazing and you can take them in at your own pace. For those that are more adventurous there are different trails to be discovered. The heritage items of both Marconi's first...More

Signal Hill offers a great deal of activities and adventure. You can drive up, or you can park at the base of the hill and walk up a combination of paths, boardwalks and stairs - we saw all ages doing it. Originally a military fortification,...More

The view with hike are well worth it although portions may not be suitable for all (a little steep). The locals like Chief the Newfoundland and his owner add to the experience.

A true highlight of the area with spectacular views, great hiking and lots of stories. Not to be missed. Go early for a private experience.

The historical significance of Signal Hill cannot be understated, particularly surrounding the second world war, and the over 10,000 US military personnel who defended the harbour from the Nazis.

What is a trip to St John's without a stop at signal hill? Well I don't know! Because you just have to come here, even if for just a few minutes. The views are beyond spectacular. This is a great place to everything from history...More

As far as I'm concerned, Signal Hill is a must for the view. The Rooms was good, but exhausting to see it all and if you're not into museums, don't go if you only have 4 days. We took an O'Brien's Bay Bulls boat tour and... More
