Sauron’s Road

The road between Barad-dûr and Orodruin

A road that ran west to east across the desolate lands of the Plateau of Gorgoroth in Mordor. It connected Sauron's Dark Tower of Barad-dûr to the heart of the Mount Doom, covering a distance of some thirty miles. The road emerged from the western gate of the Barad-dûr across an iron bridge, and ran for three miles between chasms in the earth, and then proceeded along a straight westward causeway that led upward to the eastern mountainside of Orodruin. From there it circled the cone of the great volcano until it reached an eastward-facing entrance far above: the doorway to the Sauron's Chambers of Fire.
