We accidentally arrived at Signal Hill because of redirected traffic to manage the overflow of folk on their way to Quidi Viti lake for the 199th Royal St. John’s Regatta – otherwise called Regatta Day!
This was a cloudy, drizzly day so we had a quick look around, deciding to return the next day when the weather promised to be nicer. It was! The day was warm and filled with sunshine as we took to the trails that lead us around Signal Hill.
We didn’t visit to get to know the history of the area – we came to enjoy its rustic coastal beauty. We started from the Visitor’s Centre and walked the Centre to Citadel trail. Next we started on the Ladies Lookout trail, but turned around to take the North Head trail that would eventually take us to Outer Battery Road and upwards and onwards to our truck parked at the lot by Gibbet Hill.
The North Head trail was, to me, the most beautiful as we walked literally along the cliff. My favorite spot was where we watched the gulls at the cliff walls. According to the information map at the Chain Rock Battery entrance to the North Head trail (where we exited) we walked a little over two kilometers.
Nice way to walk off all the food we’ve been eating!!! LoL!! Eating mussels does not give me muscles!! 😉
