Haunted Stream Track runs parallel to the Haunted Stream and comprises 54 river crossings, they were fairly shallow. Access to many sections of the stream from the track is difficult due to steep!! overgrown banks.(Some lift is needed) magnificent display of tree ferns lining the Haunted Stream Valley. And with good camping on some of the banks makes It a good trip for the family.Track ends at Dowson City Campsite.
Added by adzee - Went through November 15th 2011 and it was completely different to Jan 2011. Water has eroded creek entry/exits and made them fairly sharp. Large trees down, however there has been track made to pass. I would rate medium to difficult, water is in every creek crossing now.
Length: 10km to 30km
Features: Sharp Rocks, Steep ascents/descents, River crossing(s)
Finally got to cross Haunted Stream Tk off the list! It was a very dry day and it had been dry up there for quite a while. The crossings were all quite shallow. Some of the river entry and exits were a little steep but nothing major. This track does require a vehicle with good ground clearance.
Did this track last week. Only 3 crossings caused some concern due to dodgy entries and exits. Had to track build. Water levels no problem however. Dawson City Track back out of the valley was steep, rocky and eroded. Had to squeeze the cheeks together going up this one.
great mostly easy for the Mj. one creek exit we had to do some track building on due to a rock step which a couple of the other 4wds with us had trouble with....... and i will admit that the next day as we were airing down to do billy goats i found that my front hubs were not locked :)
Did this nov 6 .very dry conditions
The run into the actual start of the track takes ages along a narrow rocky section of track which I suspect was a bridle trail from the gold mining era.stirling ruins are not something immediately apparent. Stirling track up to angora range road would be interesting with moisture on the track. First crossing on the haunted rocky and chopped up.
Spent 3 days over Easter at Dawson City. Haunted stream track was relatively easy with the amount of water in each of the crossings, not sure if they would get much deeper during the times the track is open ( closed during winter ). Some fun parts, but generally easy.

Can anyone tell me which direction is best. Travelling either Ensay to Swifts Creek? Or vice versa (via the track of course)?

If you come from the main bitumen road (end on the map above) and then try to exit via the road heading south up the hill, you wouldn't want to do it in the wet!!! It is clay with big ruts, and big rocks, keep your distance in any weather heading up it, they go everywhere. Going the other way as per the maps intended direction there is nothing too challenging. Some big trees have fallen with Z like drive forward revers drive forward way of manoeuvring past them. You will need a spotter. Good fun though!

According to a recent traveller along Hawnted Stream is has been chopped up considerably on some of the entrances/Exits to the crossings, not considered suitable at all for soft roaders without low range and some lift.

By all accounts this is at the moment at least a BLUE if not a BLACK rated track.
