Western Bruinen Source is an area within the Misty Mountains in the western region.

Travelers coming from Rivendell Valley in the Trollshaws first set foot in Western Bruinen Source, one of two passages into the Misty Mountains. This area features the lower areas of alpine terrain, with snowy expanses as well as steep, icy mountain sides, but yet groves of spruce and clusters of hardy bushes. Frozen ponds and streams are abundant in the area as well leading to the wide array of wildlife such as bears, lynxes, snow-beasts and snow-lurkers prowling this area for prey and water.

Adventurers often search out the higher and colder Northern Bruinen Source, which has a similar wildlife and also large and vicious worms, roaming hill-men, and the well-known raid instance of Helegrod. To the east is High Crag, a more heavily wooded area with wildlife similar to this area. Finally, to the north-east is a passage at Whitcleft into Eastern Bruinen Source, where high populations of goblins and wargs are found.

Adventurers quickly find their way to Glóin's Camp which serves as the only place of respite for most of the western Misty Mountains. The old dwarf camp provides some minor services, such as a stable-master with few local rides (as well as rides back into Rivendell), mailbox, milestone, a provisioner and healer, several quest givers, and a task board.
