Located deep within a lush and dense jungle, Hidden Meadows is an open area surrounded by colossal trees, palm trees and bushes of various kinds. It is also the only place where the gum tree berries grow.
Traveling to Hidden Meadows on foot (without the use of super speed) takes approximately four days. However, the routes to Hidden Meadows are extremely dangerous, if not lethal, as areas like Danger Falls, Hazard Jungle, Jeopardy Lake, Peril River and Pleasant Gardens lie along them. Serious survival skills are thus necessary to get there unscathed.
When betting over who had the better survival skills, Amy and Sticks raced Sonic and Knuckles to Hidden Meadows when Amy needed to go there to get gum tree berries. In spite of their unpreparedness, the boys almost reached the finish line in Hidden Meadows first, but the girls beat them to it by riding there on an Eggman missile from an abandoned missile silo.
