How to Find the Stag Station in the Queen's Gardens in Hollow Knight

Hollow Knight, a Metroidvania action-adventure game from Team Cherry, recounts the adventures of an unnamed warrior known as the Knight as they move through Hallownest. The kingdom is now in ruins due to a mysterious infection.

The Knight can acquire new items, abilities, spells, and charms as the Knight progresses through Hallownest, aiding the Knight in navigating the various sections and taking down foes.

In the game, the Knight can fast travel to different areas in Hallownest with the help of the Last Stag and Stag Stations

Stags were once employed to move products and bugs around the country via the Stagways, a network of tunnels throughout Hallownest that used Stag Stations to connect various locations during the height of the kingdom of Hallownest.

Travel through the Stagways disappeared after Hallownest fell, and most Stag Stations were shut down. At present, The Last Stag, a huge stag beetle, is the last of his kind in Hallownest.

There is a Stag Station in almost every area in Hallownest, and most Stag Stations require turning on a toll booth using Geo.

A nearby bell must be struck with the Nail to call the Last Stag once a Stag Station has been unlocked. Additionally, this must be done at any time at any Stag Station other than the recently used one.

In this guide, we will discuss finding the Stag Station in the Queen’s Gardens in Hollow Knight!

Queen’s Gardens Stag Station in Hollow Knight

The Stag Station in the Queen’s Gardens can be found on the left side near the middle of the Queen’s Gardens area map.

Getting to this Stag Station may look easy, based on the map, but the Knight would have to go around the northern part and then towards the western part of the map as the main entrance to the Stag Station is closed.

The Knight will run into various foes in the Queen’s Gardens. On the route to the Stag Station, the Knight will run into Oomas, Uomas, Spiny Husks, Fool Eaters, Mossflies, Mantis Petras, Mantis Traitors, and Loodles.

Before the Knight can head to the Queen’s Gardens and find the Stag Station, it is required that the Knight has the Isma’s Tear ability, which allows the Knight to swim in pools of acid, the Mantis Claw ability, which allows the Knight to cling to walls and jump off of them, the Mothwing Cloak ability, which allows the Knight to perform a horizontal dash forward, and the Monarch Wings ability, which allows the Knight to perform a secondary jump in mid-air. With these abilities, reaching the Queen’s Gardens area and finding the Stag Station will be a piece of cake.
