You're able to simply walk in. Click the front door and Femi will appear saying "Hey!" you reply "Hi!" and she asks you to help her with some boxes. Your character grabs the boxes and when you next click the front door, it opens. No quests at all it seems.

From Ardougne (East), run/walk North West until you reach the Stronghold.

If the Tree Gnome Village quest has been completed, a one-way transport (only to) exists to get to Tree Gnome Stronghold. The spirit tree in Tree Gnome Village will teleport the player to Tree Gnome Stronghold for free. If a player is not nearby a spirit tree (North East corner of the Grand Exchange, Battlefield of Khazard, Tree Gnome Village, or South Feldip Hills) one may use a charge on a Ring of duelling to teleport to South Feldip Hills, then use the spirit tree near there to teleport to Tree Gnome Village, then use the spirit tree in Tree Gnome Village to teleport to Tree Gnome Stronghold.

The Gnome Glider, which is located on the top level of the Grand Tree, allows quick transport to the peak of White Wolf Mountain, Al Kharid, Karamja, the Feldip Hills (after finishing One Small Favour) and the Tree Gnome Village (after finishing The Prisoner of Glouphrie).

Just below the entrance to the Grand Tree, there is a Spirit tree that players can use after completing The Grand Tree. It provides transports to the Tree Gnome Village, the battlefield of Khazard (near Ardougne), North East corner of the Grand Exchange, and to South Feldip Hills.

Players can use the Balloon Transport System after completing Enlightened Journey. This can transport a player to Entrana, Taverley, the Crafting Guild, Varrock, and Castle Wars.

After teleporting to the Fishing Guild by rubbing a charged Skills necklace, a player can travel West to arrive at the front gate of the Stronghold.

If The Grand Tree quest has been completed, and 37 Agility has been achieved: a player can travel from the Barbarian Assault selection from the Games Necklace, to the Agility shortcut to the South West; and into the Grand Tree.

Finally, seed pods from Gnome Restaurant minigame can be used to transport a player to the Grand Tree instantly. They are consumed after one use.

Another way to get there is to teleport to the Eagles' Peak lodestone and head South to the main gate, or alternatively use the Agility shortcut over the Western fence into the terrorbird pen.

Tree Gnome Stronghold


Area Features:

The Grand Tree is the largest structure within the Stronghold and is located in the North East.

The Gnome Stronghold Agility course is the lowest-level Agility training course in RuneScape, and is located in the Eastern region. It is impossible to fail or to lose any life points on this course. However, you can fall off the courses' signpost run. You can't die by falling off the signpost run.

There is a swamp to collect king worms and swamp toads for their toad's legs for Herblore and Gnome Restaurant in the North East. Many players collect swamp toads here which sell for a decent price.

The Gnome Ball field is in the North West.

There are a total of seven yew trees and three magic trees for Woodcutting, which combined with the close bank makes it a great place for training level 99 Woodcutting.

There is a small flax field, as well as spinning wheels for Crafting and Fletching.
