Cape Spear Coastline, Newfoundland, Canada 02

Description : Looking towards Signal Hill - Walking trails take the visitor along the coast to the most easterly point and Fort Cape Spear.

Signal Hill rises above the entrance of St. John,s harbour and because of its strategic location, was a natural site for a signal station and fortifications protecting the harbour and city below. As early as 1704, flag signals were flown from the summit of Signal Hill to inform St. John,s of approaching ships, both friendly and hostile.
