Straight Road

In the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, Straight Road is a route that leaves the earth's curvature through sky and space to the ethereal land of Aman. Although elves mainly find this road, Tolkien hints that some mortals besides the Fellowship and Bilbo can also find this route. It is actually the old path across Belegaer that the earth fell away from.
