Aleweed Pass

The steep gorge of the River Ale connecting Aleweed Valley with New Kels Valley. The pass is snowbound from mid October to mid March. When the snows melt in early March the River Ale floods and does not recede until July.

The town of Trade in the Aleweed Valley and the city of Harsell are the closest cities to the mouth of the pass.

For southbound flatboat traffic the pass is open from early July to early August when the river is too dry to be navigable.

For northbound, wagon and foot traffic the pass cannot be used until late July when the river is low until it becomes snowbound in October.
