The Dark Door visible through the trees of the Dimholt, as depicted in Peter Jackson's The Return of the King

The Dimholt was a forest situated at the base of the Dwimorberg mountain, past Dunharrow in northeastern Gondor.

The Dimholt was a forest of pine wood and fir. An ancient road was visibly forged there, that led to a glen where a standing stone was placed before the Dark Door, which signified the entrance to the Paths of the Dead.[1]

The path led under Dwimorberg, and was haunted by the spirits of the men of the mountain of the Third Age. Even Legolas, a woodland Elf, could not long endure being under the forest's trees.[2]


Dimholt is a Rohirric word translating approximately to "secret wood".
