Cedar Grove Woods is the only rural area in Liberty City. In GTA III, it is believed that the player can find Bigfoot in this location. In GTA Liberty City Stories, the cryptid reported in the area is instead called the Woods Creature.
Most of the area is inaccessible and full of glitches, mainly due to only a small part of it being solid. This can cause the player to fall into Blue Hell, or find the Ghost Town. A couple of blocked off tunnels in this area lead to Upstate Liberty.
