The Dawn Pass Trail ran between the Savage Frontier and Anauroch in northwest Faerûn.[1][2]

The westernmost point of the Dawn Pass Trail was the town of Loudwater. Going east through the Gray Vale, it followed the River Grayflow, north of the Southwood. It passed through the town of Llorkh, and then entered the Graypeak Mountains, where it ran through Dawn Pass, for which it was named.[1][2] Emerging from the mountains, it met the village of Parnast,[3] then went south of Weathercote Wood and ended at the Lonely Moor, its easternmost point. There it was joined to the Black Road, which crossed the desert of Anauroch.[1][2]
