The Minish Woods is a location from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. Located in southeastern Hyrule, it is where the Minish race resides. The Minish Woods is also home to the Deepwood Shrine, where the Earth Element is housed. Link also finds the Minish Village, which is home to the Minish Elder Gentari, Festari, and a countless number of other Minish people. The Witch's Hut, where Link can buy Red Potions, Blue Potions (if a certain Kinstone fusion had been completed) and the Wake-Up Mushroom from Syrup, is also found located within the Minish Woods. Link must also travel through the woods to get to Mayor Hagen's Lakeside Cabin. A Fairy Fountain can also be found in the Minish Woods.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Link meets Ezlo in the Minish Woods while on his journey to meet with the Minish; Ezlo is being attacked by Octoroks, and Link saves him. Ezlo comments about how the forest is the only thing in the Human world that still uses the term "Minish" rather than "Picori".
