The stirling track intersects with the haunted stream track and is the last point you can exit the haunted stream track before committing to the 50 odd crossings of the Haunted Stream.
The Stirling track has a lot of rutty sections at the lower end closest to the HS. it is clay based in sections and black soil in others. in the wet it would be a very challenging track and may be a winch coming out from HS. In the upper reaches near the Angora Range road again clay and rock based and as of Nov 2012 Cup weekend lots of debris from winter storms.
