Bruinen Gorges is an area within The Trollshaws in the southern central region.

This area encompasses the Great East Road between South Trollshaws and the Bruinen river and High Moor beyond, and between the southern Tâl Bruinen and the northern Nan Tornaeth. The main road is fairly safe also for the weaker traveller, though being cautious of the prowling wildlife is a must, and during nights you may find trolls stroll both the roads and the landscape. The smaller roads and paths are much more dangerous, Bruinen Gorges is home to trolls, bears, deer, wolfes, and other creatures. This area is known for its towering rock formations and varied landscape, and for its troll-cave and wolf dens.

Centrally located is the outpost of Thorenhad, where Elf-scouts charged by Elrond are watching over the Trollshaws. There his sons Elladan and Elrohir are aiding the scouts, as well as welcoming adventurers opposing the Enemy. Thorenhad affords visitors with basic services and armament vendors, and there are a milestone and a stable-master who provides some normal-speed rides.
