This trailhead is a bit hidden to the naked eye. It's located in a small turnout on the right hand side if you where driving down from empire. To access Woodcutters trail there is a fire road you must walk alongside the road to find maybe 2/10ths a mile. walk this fireroad and you will find an intersection with official trail and milage markers. There are some trails/fire roads that are apart of Wilder Ranch, some of which are not maintained. Although woodcutters seems to be in a good condition as bikers use this path quite often.

This trail does not seem to exist any more, at least from Smith Grade Rd. We tried very hard to find the trail head and could not.
