In Lambent Grove, the playable characters are stuck running down the level's road and can only move left and right between the road's lanes (akin to the Quick Step). While running, the player can pick up powerups from Item Boxes and utilize the gimmicks native to this track.
Lambent Grove has many environmental obstacles which the player can either jump over, roll under or move around. Running into one of these obstacles will result in the player taking damage and lose some of their Rings. Falling into bottomless pits on the other hand forces the player to restart from an earlier point on the track.
The racers alternate between running through alternating four and six-lane sections of either land or Grind Rails, the former of which has many Dash Panels and Item Boxes. There are numerous obstacles such as electric trees placed in the racers' paths, and the stage has a set of Triple Dash Pads positioned near the end. All traps used (save for traps such as the Chao-nado, Lava Bomb, Star Trail, etc.) cover all empty spaces on the track, so caution is advised when racing on it.
