Narrows of the Forest was the "waist" of Mirkwood forest made so by the indentation of the East Bight.[1]

The Narrows was located in the south-central part of the forest and was quite narrow, hence the name with an east-west length of only about eighty miles while most of Mirkwood's areas were over a hundred miles in length from east to west.[2]


During the time of the Wainriders invasions, Forthwini, the Lord of the Éothéod lands were frequently raided by the Easterling invaders who came through the Narrows and up Anduin.[3]
