Amazing views from top of signal hill, well worth the trip to the top. Wrap up well as it can be very cold.

When visiting St. John's you should certainly visit here. It has great views overlooking of the harbour, its entrance and the entire downtown area. There is also historical interpretation including a noon time canon shot. Just watch the fog!

It gives you a pretty nice view of St.John's from the top of the hill along with the harbour. The trail is very good! The go to place in St.John's. If you visit during the winter, don't forget to bring a heavy jacket!

You can't go to St. John's without walking or driving to Cabot Tower on top of Signal Hill. The gift shop is not much to look at, but everything else is - from the sidewalk and wall alongside the parking area, to the walkway around...More

To my knowledge you can always drive up to Signal Hill, the shop there will not be open. My first visit was in March and it was cold and windy, the view was awesome.
