Rangers of the North
Names: (S. “Redway” or " Red Road")
Location: Eriador/Dúneriador, Northwestern Lands
The northwestern half of the old Carbad Naugrim, which joins the Nan-i-Naugrim in the Blue Mountains to the Old North Road at Metraith by way of Siragalë (later, the Shire).
An important trail from the First and Second Ages, the Carbad Naugrim (S. “Red Dwarf-trail”), followed the River Sirannon down from the Redhorn Pass to a ferry over the Gwathló, then along the edge of the Eriadorian upland to Sarn Ford, and from there across Siragalë to the Blue Mountains. It connected the Dwarven city of Khazad-dûm with the lesser Dwarven colonies of the Nan-i-Naugrim, and incidentally allowed Dwarven commerce with the Elves. Tharbad and Ost-in-Edhil were both built along this road. In Elendil’s reign, the western half of it was paved with pink stone from the Pinnath Gerain, and was then named the Men Garan (S. “Redway”).
