Pyramid Valley is an easy-difficulty track based in Green Hill. It contains multiple corkscrews and split pathways.
In Pyramid Valley, the playable characters are stuck running down the level's road and can only move left and right between the road's four 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.
Pyramid Valley 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 begin by running on a flat stretch of land before going through a segment full of hurdles and pillars they must avoid. The next section is open and leads into a large corkscrew and a wall which must be slid under at the end of it. Beyond this lies a hurdle and three Item Boxes, and soon turns into a Grind Rail segment that takes the racers to an obstacle-filled area in front of another Grind Rail. This happens once more, leading the players to yet another obstacle-filled section before the path splits.
The path on the left has Rings and Item Boxes, while the path on the right has two long, forward-facing Conveyor Belts. The paths rejoin and go under a wall, over a hurdle, and above a bottomless pit. The racers are taken through one final obstacle course-like section before the final path split. The path on the left is entirely on land, leads to a corkscrew and has Item Boxes, while the path on the right has Rings and mainly takes place on a Grind Rail corkscrew before rejoining with the main path. The finish line can be found directly ahead.
