An Explorer's Guide to the Stewart-Cassiar Highway (BC Hwy 37)

At Km 288 is a BC Heritage sign describing the Yukon Telegraph:
    Born of the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898, the 1,900 mile Dominion Telegraph Line linked Dawson City with Vancouver via the CPR wires through Ashcroft. Built in 1899-1901, the line blazed a route across the vast northern section of the Province but gave way to radio communications in the 1930s. Today, some of the trail and cabins used by the isolated telegraphers still serve wilderness travellers.
