The Silver Lake is a big landmark and we may want to stay out the forrest, but it may not be quite as wild....or it could be worse.
I'd say we don't want to give away the exact location either. We hitch a ride to open ground north east of The Silver Lake.
With a rest and recharge of spells before we leave swe could bulk up on some "Fly" spells and after our escort leave we fly to the mountain. Going over possible trouble is better than fighting through it. Also the fewer actions we have to take the less effect we have on time.
I may have Ulthok have private conversation with Cor about this.
Well if I don't hear from anyone, that is how my post will go.
The party needs rest first so that will take a bit of time. We would normally meet and discuss the plan so the magic users can pick their spells. Then the magic users need eight hour to study and prepare them. We could ready to leave on the second day. I figure there will be some more interaction with the librarian and Cor may need to find a chapel to do his cleric thing. Sirene may want some time to find information from the elves. Lothor may want to clean his weapons and practice or study some fighting stuff.
Ulthok, Sirene and Aliya need to study. Cor, Rayne and Roan need to pray. The Paladin may need to pray too. The fighter needs what a fighter needs.
So depending on what Tann writes next the party should gather and discuss a bit. I tried to leave things open enough in my post for other ideas.
We are saying that we need to keep the location of the sword secret, but if you read back to the begining of Part 2 it was already known or at least very close.
The King now did tell them the means taken to provide them the fastest way to get to the coast.
First a flight once again by Pegasus to the port of Helm�s Dike to board a ship for travel through the Strait of Aladron, which bordered the Mainland and the island of Cirith Ungol, to the port city of Chard Rush on the coast of Ravenshorn. Then by horse which would await them purchased by advanced agents North to the river city of Star Falls within the Dwarven land of Erebor where they would have to purchase river boats and again move North. They would then follow the river through the lands of Erebor, Callahorn, Rodruin, and finally into Greymark. Through the Silver Mountains, across the Silver Lake, into the forests of Rodruin and into the woods of Greymark. The location of the final hiding place still kept secret from all for the moment. Though the boat trip did run close to the evil island the route was quicker then overland, and time as it had been in the search for Althena was of the essence.
So we don't want to be blabbing it but it does get discovered sometime.
Food for thought or even posting.

Allanan's daughter finds it locked within her head psionically when she comes of age and gains her psionics. She keeps it secret and knowing the importance of that knowledge asks to be put for safe keeping in the monastery from the beginning of the game
She tells the King of Shan'Tara after you rescued her from the Steel Mountains knowing that the time has come to reveal the location so the sword can finally be destroyed and he passed it on to you.
Well in truth we assume Lady Jessica is dead...BUT...no proof.
She was wisked off by a Mind Flayer, dropping her sword.
Now Illithids usually drain their victums brain, but they do take slaves, sooooo....Lady Jessica could still be alive.
It's the Great, great,great,great,great.....something of Fuzzy Bunny!!!!!!!
Also Tann is right about the location being hidden, I went farther back in the story and found that part.
"But Allanan was no fool before his sudden disappearance, some believe at the hands of a group of assassins he had been seen with last, he imparted the secret of the Swords hiding place to only the other Valar yet untouched by Karza's evil, his only daughter. With her Dad gone, the great secret in her head, and no home to safely return to. she traveled alone for almost 1200 years her identity hidden from all. She found a home, fell in love, got married. Then watched as her husband was murdered right before her eyes by a band of roving Trolls, only by the grace of Odin and the fact the trolls did not know the secret she possessed did she escape. It was this that finally decided her to reveal her secret to one she hoped she could trust she. That person being myself , to you I present Althena Sunblayze Daughter of Allanan and my adopted daughter. The secret she holds may decide the fate of Trilogy if revealed to Karza, as such I sent you to rescue her, and you did not fail me. Now you know why other then my love for her why her rescue was so very important.
Would you believe that that was written 1/10/2006.
For those of you that want to retrace the sword finding adventure is starts on Page 13, that's right way back to Page 13. We are now on Page 234.
