Stonewain Valley was a valley of Gondor in the Third Age. It was located in the east of the White Mountains, deep within the Druadan Forest. Its eastern end was at the northwest of the Rammas Echor encircling Minas Tirith, near the Grey Wood, while its western end was located below the beacon of Nardol.


King Théoden led the army of Rohan through this vale to aid Gondor. The road that went through the valley was four horses wide, and had been made in ancient days by the Men of Gondor as a route from the quarries beneath Min-Rimmon to Minas Anor. By the time of the War of the Ring, it was forgotten by Men. However, on March 13, 3019, King Théoden met with Ghân-buri-Ghân, headman of the Woses, in the Druadan forest near Dunharrow, and the latter revealed the existence of the old road.[1] The next day, the Rohirrim used the road through the valley on their way to the Pelennor Fields.
