Petty Harbour is a small fisherman town. It looks like a fairy tale toy. Under the summer Newfoundland sun the town is colourful and festive. Life here is slow and leisurely. After the city rush you find rest and relax here.
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.
