Leaving Undead Parish, past Andre of Astora, you will enter Darkroot Garden. A moist, dark place with a thick forest atmosphere. The area is a collection of smaller forest areas. There are two Boss fights and a hidden Bonfire. The Forest Hunter Covenant is also located in Darkroot Garden.
Your first enemy encounters are some Demonic Foliage. Further along you will notice a large sealed door. To enter, you will need to purchase the Crest of Artorias from Blacksmith Andre (for 20,000 Souls) or enter from the Darkroot Basin side.
To the left of the sealed door is a hidden Bonfire, hit the walls to unlock it. To the right is the main path to the Moonlight Butterfly, the first Boss in the garden. In this area are some Giant Stone Knights, two Tree Lizards and more Demonic Foliage.
At the base of some ruins with stairs, you can find the summoning sign for Witch Beatrice (if you are in human form). Up the stairs is the Moonlight Butterfly battle. Beyond here is a tower that leads to the Divine Ember and the Watchtower Basement Key.
In the area with the Giant Stone Knights, there are a few trees that move. One of them blocks a path that will eventually lead to the Wolf Ring. Along the way you will encounter a few Frog-Ray creatures.
From the Wolf Ring location, you can jump across the gap and end up back on the main path.
Beyond the sealed door, or up the ladder from Darkroot Basin, is the home of the Forest Hunter Covenant. Playing online and in Human makes this area very difficult as players from the Covenant, at any Soul Level will join your game. As a Hollow, this area can still be a little tough.
