Description:

Soon they struck ... the road to Woodhall, and Stock, and the Bucklebury Ferry. It ... wound over the skirts of the Green Hills towards Woody End, a wild corner of the Eastfarthing.

[They] came back to the road at the end of the long level over which it had run straight for some miles. At that point it bent left and went down into the lowlands of the Yale making for Stock; but a lane branched right, winding through a wood of ancient oak-trees on its way to Woodhall.

'For tonight we go to the woods on the hills above Woodhall.' ...

Suddenly..., and before them lay a wide space of grass ... [Eastward] the ground fell steeply and the tops of the dark trees, growing at the bottom of the slope, were below their feet. Beyond, the low lands lay dim and flat under the stars. Nearer at hand a few lights twinkled in the village of Woodhall.

'We can cut straighter than the road anyway,' answered Frodo. 'The Ferry is east from Woodhall; but the hard road curves away to the left....'

The hobbits scrambled down a steep green bank.... Their course had been chosen to leave Woodhall to their left, and to cut slanting through the woods that clustered along the eastern side of the hills, until they reached the flats beyond. Then they could make straight for the Ferry over country that was open.... Frodo reckoned they had eighteen miles to go in a straight line.

'We lost our way in the woods, back near Woodhall, trying to take a short cut to the Ferry.'
