Bonfire Glade
Region: Bree-land
Area: Old Forest
Location: [32.9S, 60.7W]

Bonfire Glade is a landmark within the Old Forest, in Bree-land. [32.8S, 60.7W]

This seemingly serene clearing in the forest is located straight east of the Old Forest Tunnel. Many adventurers see it as a crossroad, a marker in a wood where signs and maps don't help much. However, long ago this was the place of a battle between hobbits and the trees of the Old Forest (see lore below).

"'They do say the trees do actually move, and can surround strangers and hem them in. In fact long ago they attacked the Hedge: they came and planted themselves right by it, and leaned over it. But the hobbits came and cut down hundreds of trees, and made a great bonfire in the Forest, and burned all the ground in a long strip east of the Hedge. After that the trees gave up the attack, but they became very unfriendly. There is still a wide bare space not far inside where the bonfire was made.'" — Merry, The Fellowship of the Ring
