Key Access Areas

  • This key structure is located next to the exit/entrance of Coastal Highway (Cinder Hills Coal Mine).


  • There's commonly a Wolf Wandering Path for the area around the Abandoned Lookout and he will trigger by you simply walking outside of the sheltered part (despite still being at the top of the lookout).
