Rangers of the North
Pinnath Teryg (S. “Ridges of the Trolls”); the “Trollshaws”
The Pinnath Teryg are a series of forested hills in central Rhudaur. These upland woods, consisting at least partly of beech trees, lie to the west of Rivendell between the Rivers Hoarwell and Loudwater. True to their name, the Trollshaws are home to a large population of Trolls who provide no end of troubles for the local Hillmen. According to popular legend, the famous Hobbit Bilbo Baggins of Bag-end met and bested three trolls while trekking through the Trollshaws.
