Hi,

I am planning a trip at Easter and was planning to go through Haunted Stream on my way from Grant through to Jackson's crossing. Haunted stream is apparently closed. I am looking for some recommendations on routes from Grant to Jackson's crossing. If you have route files that would be great.

My understanding is that access to Jacksons Crossing from the west is across private land and, I assume, you need permission in order to cross. Although the river bed is firm and stony it is a very long crossing, take care. Of course you may be intending to enter from the south/east?

You could come across Bullock Head Saddle and then wind your way through; there are plenty of possibilities. I suggest you purchase a couple of Rooftop maps of the area. Depending on how much time you have you could simply following the rising sun and see where you end up? :)

Thanks Mike, I will check out access to Jackson's. Where is Bulllock Head Saddle near?

Near the junction of the High Plains Rd and Downey Rd - about 15km north of Dargo. It will lead you through to Biregun Rd and from there you can wend your way east.

The last time we were there (I confess, it was quite a few years ago) we crossed the snowy at New Guinea, only a stones throw upstream from Jacksons.

Do you know why the Haunted Stream track is closed?

Recovery from the fires and floods I believe.
