The '''Forest Gate''' was the western entrance to the [[Elf-path]] that led across [[Mirkwood]] to the [[Elvenking's Halls]]. It was formed as a sort of arch made by two great trees leaning together that were old, ivy-strangled, hung with lichen, and bearing but a few blackened leaves.  Beyond the gate the path became a gloomy tunnel, such that from within the forest the gate appeared as a small bright hole.<ref>{{H|Flies}}</ref>

It was a four-day ride by horse from [[Beorn]]'s house directly north to the Forest Gate, which was also to the northeast of the confluence of the [[Rhimdath]] and [[Anduin]] Rivers.  When [[Thorin]] and company came to the gate, they camped there overnight before entering the forest.  It was at this point that they released [[Beorn]]'s [[ponies]], and [[Gandalf]] left the party, to the consternation of the dwarves and [[Bilbo Baggins]].<ref>{{H|Queer}}</ref>

: The Forest Gate can be found in the Northern [[Mirkwood]] reigon of "[[Eryn Lasgalen]]", but it appears to have been blocked by debris, and thus prevents travel outside the forest that way.
