Most of this area consists of vast plains with some gates and high walls that block the way. There is a small lake near the main plain. This area contains an assortment of Red and Yellow Pellets, as well as two bridges that can be built to gain access to a small piece of land containing the Sagittarius.  Behind the stone wall at the landing area is a 20 yellow Pellet on a high tree stump that requires Yellow Pikmin to reach. To the north (according to the map) is the arena where the Armored Cannon Beetle is fought and to the southwest, blocked by a Cardboard Box that requires 10 Pikmin to push, is the ledge where the Burrowing Snagrets are. Pellet Posies reside through most of the Forest of Hope.

The Bomb Rocks in this area are located inside tin cans. The first one is near the great plain with Red Bulborbs, another one is near the place where the Yellow Onion is originally found. The last can is in the place where the Nova Blaster is found. On the first day the area is visited, some are found out of the cans, three resting in front of one of the stone walls that can be destroyed after obtaining Yellow Pikmin.

The Forest of Hope Overview

Although water defends access to the Geiger Counter, the Radiation Canopy and the Sagittarius, it is possible to collect these parts without Blue Pikmin, making this level the only level in which Blue Pikmin are completely unnecessary.

In Challenge Mode there are many more Bulborbs, and Spotty Bulbears (along with a Pearly Clamclamp) can also be found where the Armored Cannon Beetle and Burrowing Snagrets are found in story mode.
