There was a road there, created long ago by the "Stonehouse-folk" (Men of Gondor), that everyone except the Wild Men had forgotten. It would have taken the Drúedain from sunrise to noon to walk it, but it required around ten hours for all of Rohan's army to get through. Each company of soldiers was guided by a Wild Man, who also sent out scouts to keep their movements secret. Movement through the forest keep the army from being spotted by the enemy.[4]

In the Fourth Age, King Aragorn II Elessar declared that the men of the forest would have the land to themselves because of their help during the war.[5]
