Forest Road

Revision as of 11:46, 13 November 2011 by Mithbot (Talk | contribs)

The Forest Road was the road that ran down from the High Pass, crossed the River Anduin and then plunged among the trees of Greenwood the Great (later called Mirkwood). It followed a nearly straight course through the central parts of the forest, somewhat to the south of the Mountains of Mirkwood, and emerged on the banks of the River Running. In ancient times the road was actually extended all the way up to the Iron Hills, but after a while the road fell into disrepair, and the Dwarves of the Iron Hills lost contact with the capital of Khazad-dûm.
