- Not to be confused with Golden Road.
The Gold Road runs north-south from Mor'shan Rampart to the Great Divide. Prior to the Cataclysm the road continued south, to a bridge connecting the northern and southern half of the Barrens. South of the bridge, the road was called the Southern Gold Road.

The following details traveling the Gold Road prior to the Cataclysm:
- Starting from north, you'll be at the Mor'shan Rampart and the Mor'shan Base Camp. Further south will be a road heading east towards Durotar. Then carry on going south along the road and arrive at Crossroads where you cross the East-West road (Ratchet to Honor's Stand). Carry on south and you'll pass two oasis' and Wailing Caverns. A little while later you'll come across a dried-up river which creates a "border" between North and South Barrens. Here also will be Mankrik's Wife, which is a quest target.
- After going further down the road, you will find a turn-off which leads into Mulgore and before that Camp Taurajo. Further south will be a path to Dustwallow Marsh. Keep going south and there'll be a dwarven hold named Bael Modan. After that is a pass and then the Great Lift and two other instances, Razorfen Downs and Razorfen Kraul.
In the RPG
This trade route is named for the trade caravans that travel regularly along the highway from Ratchet in the south all the way to Nighthaven in the north.
