High Moor is an area within The Trollshaws in the central region.
Along the Great East Road, eastwards from Bruinen river lies the barren High Moor, a rough highland dotted with rock, shrubs, and trees. In the north-east may be found the secret entrance to the hidden valley of Imladris. In the south-east a narrow gap leads into the Giant Valley and Eregion beyond.
These uplands are known for its gigantic moor-flies, bear, boar, and lynx. The lynx of the High Moor are known for dropping superb hide valued high by skilled craftsmen in Rivendell. It is also the only area in the Trollshaws not to house any trolls. The few landmarks are natural, as even the ancient Men of Arnor have left the area untouched. the turbulent ford over the Bruinen river where the fabled Frodo Baggins and company encountered the Black Riders. A bit south, by the eastern shores of the river the most beautiful lilies may be found, at the Blooming Fens, however guarded by bog-lurkers. Finally, a fabulous view over Imladris opens past its gates, the hidden and narrow gorge.
The Great East Road, running through these highlands, provides the main means of navigation through to the Elven refuge. A Camp Site Fire with a Mustering Horn is found, quite near the passage into Giant Valley. Quest givers Canaddal and Ringhul can be found at their post at the top of the slopes coming up from the Bruinen Gorges. Quests are few, and most that are in the area are repeatable.

- "You are come to the very edge of the Wild, as some of you may know. Hidden somewhere ahead of us is the fair valley of Rivendell where Elrond lives in the Last Homely House ...
- "There seemed to be no trees and no valleys and no hills to break the ground in front of them, only one vast slope going slowly up and up to meet the feet of the nearest mountain, a wide land the colour of heather and crumbling rock, with patches and slashes of grass-green and moss-green showing where water might be." - The Hobbit, Tolkien
