Wormwood Canyon

From Dragon Quest Wiki

"The path of light in this arrow is sealed,
Cradled here 'til a chosen one be revealed.
Let fly this bolt o'er the Wyrmward wide,
As the way unfolds, boldly onward stride."

—A pedestal in The Bowhole

Wormwood Canyon is the region west of Eastern Wormwood and Wormwood Creek, once known as Wyrmward. It cannot be crossed until the Hero acquires the Wyrmlight bow from the Bowhole, and creates a bridge of light across the bridge. The southern exit leads to Wyrmtail.
