The Enchanted Wood is a fictional place in H. P. Lovecraft's Dream Cycle, in the The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath novella. Its main inhabitants are the zoogs. Located in the Dreamlands, it contains a unique, haunted tree whose seed originally came from the moon.[1] This tree's sap can be fermented to create a potent drink. A stone trapdoor in these woods leads to the top of the Tower of Koth and from there into the kingdom of the Gugs in the Underworld. However, because of a curse of the Great Ones, no Gug may exit through this portal.
