The ford near White Orchard crosses two small tributaries of the river Ismena, forming part of the road west of the village.

Upon their arrival to the region, this is where Geralt of Rivia and Vesemir first encountered the griffin terrorizing the White Orchard the May of 1272. As they approached, the griffin was devouring a horse that belonged to the merchant Bram, whose cart had been attacked a short time prior. The witchers successfully drove the monster off, as it carried off the dead horse.

Bram then thanked the witchers and recommended the inn in White Orchard village. Unable to fix his broken cart, he abandoned it for good and took his goods to the same village. His cart may still be seen later in the same spot, still stuck in the sand with a broken wheel but without its cargo.

On the west side of the Ford, one can immediately see the region's signature white-blossomed trees surrounding Dune Vildenvert and his brother's farm.
