Far Lower Right Side of Map, past Riften
There is a path leading out of the lower right side of the map, it's right around the corner from the Black Mead house, and you can't access wherever it leads to; the game will say "cannot go this way" or something to that effect. I've used the area to build a massive town around the Black Mead house (utilizing the incredible mod Pocket Empire), and what I'm wondering is... is that an area that becomes accessible via one of the DLC's for the game?

Thanks in advance for any responses.

No, that is just the end of the map.

That's weird; you'd think the devs would seal it off rather than have a path leading out through a gate; it looks like it was left open with the intention of further development.

The path to Fort Dawnguard (from the DLC) is down that way, but not sure if exactly where you're talking about.

There is another path on the other side of the map as well. They might have been placed there by the DEVs for possible DLCs.

If I have understood correctly what you are talking about, then those are border gates to Morrowind (2), Cyrodiil and Hammerfell.

If you want them to be more immersive, then there is a mod for that. I am using this, because seeing completeley abandoned gates in a country of war didn't fit me imagination.

Ilja I noticed the Pale Pass gate had an image that said it was viewed for the Cyrodiil side. How is that possible???

For the one's not certain of where I'm talking about, if you look at the very lower right of this map, it's the trail extending out of Riften to the south/east (more east than south) and then right off the map:

Its the road to Fort Dawnguard and I believe, ultimately, Morrowind.

ah... so it IS a path that goes somewhere with a DLC.

To access Dawnguard you must go throu one cave.
And it is south of one Tower "Spoiler"

No. First off, there will be no more DLC. Development on this game is long done, and they aren't even doing bug-fixes anymore.

Those areas (and there are several) are put in so you don't run into the 'end of the map' and look outover an empty abyss. If you look out from certain points you can see they heightmapped Morrowind, Cyrodil and several other neighboring provinces. On a good day you can even see the big spire in the imperial capital. But there's nothing there except the ground and a tiny number of low-detail buildings.

This is about as clear a screenshot as I can get:

(the city at the end of the lake is Riften)

Dude, you answered my question, thank you. The "Fort Dawnguard" icon on the map is exactly where I can't get to right now. I don't have any DLC's yet, just the original Skyrim with a ton of mods. Thanks again for helping to clarify. I may now have to break down and buy the DLC! I'm totally obsessed with that area of the map, having spent about 40 hours now on building up a town around the Black Mead house (it's the house icon on the far right side of the map; if you you drew a straight line from the bottom point of the Fort Dawnguard icon, over to the left, it would be the first structure that you hit) including stairs that wind through the mountains and multiple bridges, etc., and that closed-off trail has been haunting me.

Dawnguard isn't down that trail, just FYI. It's in an isolated valley adjacent to the trail, only accessible from a cave slightly to the north.

This, Dawnguard isn't located off that map, just an entrace to another place in Skyrim. It's possibly left open for DLC they never made.
