Legolin was one of the rivers of the Ossiriand in the eastern Beleriand.

Originating in the Blue Mountains, it was one of the six tributaries to the great river Gelion.[1]

According to Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-earth, it appears to have been about seventy-five miles in length.[2]


Legolin was a Sindarin word.[3]
