Portage Road

The Portage Road follows the north side of the River Rose from the Giant’s Staircase all the way to Trollwatch Castle. It is paved with large flagstones and was built by dwarves in the years after the signing of the treaty. Apart from the river itself, it is the primary trade route of the glen.
