The Men of Rohan passed through the forest on their way to Minas Tirith, guided by Ghân-buri-Ghân. 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.
