(Sindarin for Wood of Greenleaves), also known as Eryn Lasgalen, encompasses a dense and heavy woodland from the eastern shores of the river Anduin to the dreaded fortress of Dol Guldur. Its natural land features included (in the northern part of the forest) the Mountains of Mirkwood, a sizable river referred to in Tolkien's map as the Forest River, that ran from the Grey Mountains down to Long Lake, and a smaller river that ran from the Mountains of Mirkwood to join with the Forest River west of the Elven-king's Halls.

Mirkwood is a name used for two distinct fictional forests in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium.
In the First Age, the highlands of Dorthonion north of Beleriand were known as Mirkwood after falling under Morgoth's control. Along with the rest of the region west of Ered Luin, this forest disappeared after the cataclysm of the War of Wrath, although a few of its peaks may have survived as an island far off the coast of Lindon.
With the coming of the Second Age and the arrival of the Necromancer, the large forest in Rhovanion, east of the Anduin in Middle-earth, was was known as Greenwood the Great.
