The North Head Trail is Signal Hill’s most popular and most difficult hiking trail. This 1.7 km trail takes approximately 90 mins and descends almost 500 feet. Hikers connect with the trail from Signal Hill’s top parking lot. From there they descend down boardwalk stairs, follow a footpath to North Head at the entrance to the St. John's Harbour, & hike along the narrows to Lower Battery Road. Parks Canada asks 1st-time hikers to check with the Visitor Centre.
