The Adurant runs from southern Blue Mountains into the river Gelion, marking the southern boundary of Ossiriand.

According to Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-earth, it was over one-hundred and fifty miles in length.[1]

The small island of Tol Galen lied in its midst.[2][3]


The name means "Double-course" in Sindarin, referring to a parting of the river about the isle of Tol Galen.[4]
