Default Tatchu Trail - Port Eliza to Rugged Point

Hi all,
Saw a couple of trip reports from a few years ago regarding this trip, which were great.
I was planning on hiking it in July this year... Was hoping someone possibly had GPS coordinates to share. I ordered John Baldwin's map for the trail as well...

Talking with the helpful guys at Air Nootka, they suggested drop at Port Eliza, and pick up at Rugged Point.
I do understand there is a few hours ~7-8KM on a logging road. Also saw a post about a washout from a couple years ago. Does anyone know if that's been repaired or if a bypass is available?

Thanks in advance!

I would be very much surprised if the washout is repaired. Also Keep in mind that the dock at Port Eliza is damaged and landing is perhaps difficult if not impossible.

Maybe the folks at the Ressort at Kapoose Creek know more.

So i would reccomend, booking Shoreline Expeditions for the drop off at Yellow Bluff Bay and Air Nootka of pick up at Rugged Point
