Ringwil was a river of Beleriand during the First Age; a tributary of the Narog river.

The Ringwil flowed through Taur-en-Faroth from its beginning in the hills surrounding the hidden city of Nargothrond running approximately twenty-five miles in length, according to the The Atlas of Middle-earth.[1]


At the place it met the Narog, there was built a secret door that Lúthien used to escape the city when Celegorm and Curufin imprisoned her.[2] It was lost with destruction of the Beleriand at the end of the First Age.[3][4]
