Forest Gate
was the western entrance to the northern part of the Forest of Mirkwood beginning with the Elven-path.

It is described as an arch-like opening made by two large ivy layered, lichen covered trees bearing only a few blackened leaves, that had leant together forming a dark narrow tunnel.


In the HobbitEdit

Thorin and Company passed through the Forest Gate on the twenty-fifth of July 2941 after Gandalf departed with the ponies.[1][2][3]
