The roseroad splits from the kingsroad just south of King's Landing in the crownlands. It briefly runs southwest through the edge of the kingswood. The roseroad crosses the Mander at Bitterbridge and again at Highgarden, where it meets the Ocean Road. After Highgarden, it continues southwest to Oldtown at Whispering Sound.[3][4]
