Westcoastwill,

Camped (Treeplanting Camp) across from Boat Basin in the late 70's/ early 80's and, on days off, bushwhacked some of this coast and found a lot of the telegraph wires.
(There was an article in the Georgia Strait Newspaper back then, about Cougar Annie and her telegraph Trail)

Later in the 90/s, Treeplanting from Stewardson Inlet logging camp, went back to Hesquiat to see if I could find them.
Found some, but the bushwhacking was near impossible with over and undergrowth, so went and wandered the Hesquiat (and south around the point) beaches at low tide.

You could probably bushwhack this trail, but you'd definitely need too maps and gear for it.
Would be a good trip, even if you didn't make it all the way.

cheers
