Because they would have had to march right past Minas Tirith or right through Rohan to get there. Dol Amroth is south of the White Mountains, so unless your name happens to end with 'heir of Isildur', you can only get to Mirkwood by going one of those two ways.

I can't contrive any scenario which would lead the Prince of Dol Amroth to travel further than the distance to his nation's capital, in order to fight a less-important battle than the one happening in the Pelennor.
