The Entwash, a translation of the Sindarin name Onodlˇ, had its sources in the springs that arose on Mount Methedras, the southernmost peak of the Misty Mountains, near Treebeard's home.
Leaving Fangorn forest, the river flowed past the Wold of Rohan, and then headed south, dividing Rohan into West and East Emnet. At the latitude of Edoras it was joined by the river Snowbourn, and then flowed west towards Anduin, which it joined just south of the Falls of Rauros, in the huge inland delta known as the Mouths of the Entwash. The Mering Stream or GlanhÝr met one of the Entwashes' arms there. The influence of water was so great that at the other end of the Anduin the marshes of Nindalf (Wetwang) and the Dead Marshes arose.
The Entwash was named for the Ents (Onodrim) of Fangorn, but the origin of the name was largely forgotten by the Rohirrim.
Its drainage basin was the entirety of Rohan, from Fangorn Forest and The Wold, south to the White Mountains.
Leaving Fangorn, the Entwash flowed to the southeast for a while and acted as a southwest boundary for The Wold.
The volume of water carried by the Entwash was so great by this time that the Anduin could contain it and its flow spread out over the Anduin's eastern banks, forming the vast, growing marshland known as the Nindalf (Wetwang).
