Clave Rock is a Lovian rural mountain village near Train Village, Sylvania. Named after the Clave Rock formation, the hamlet is situated in the Emerald Highlands of Sylvania. Clave Rock used to be a miners' town and is now gaining reputation as "Lovia's Hikers and Bikers Paradise." It's known to be green, quiet and scenic.

Economy and tourism Edit

The hamlet is on the road to the Emerald Highlands National Park and is slowly developing tourist facilities for hikers in the area. It suffered a great deal from the 2008/2009 economical downturn. Sylvania Governor Martha Van Ghent has started a project to recover the area and make it attractive to both tourists and natives.

Cliff Park on McCrooke Avenue is a small but popular park with a large pond. Swimming is allowed in summer. The bigger Oxelinx Park in the south is especially renowned for its abundancy of butterflies in season. Oxelinx Park is bordered to the north by the Green Pathway, formerly a railway track which has been turned into a paved pathway leading out of the hamlet, into the Emerald Highlands.

There's a small McMarket branch in the hamlet, as well as the locally well-known Emerald Bakery. Along McCrooke Avenue, there's a bike rental and a competing mountaineering store, The National Mountaineer, which sells ans rents outdoors wear, including mountainbikes.

Clave Rock's only lodging facility is the B&B Oxelinx Park, located across Emerald Bakery and on the east end of Oxelinx Park. It has a maximum capacity of five couples, and sometimes also caters breakfast to non-guests. The Stumble-In is a new tavern in the hamlet and the scene of young bands and musicians, occasionally hosting live music performances. The Libertan folk artist Sawyer Hillbilly, who has a residence in the hamlet, performs on a weekly basis at the Stumble-In.

Clave Rock is accessible by railway from Train Village and Noble City.

The hamlet's roads, parks and touristic facilities were heavily renovated and re-organized by Sylvania Governor Martha Van Ghent (Walden) in late 2010. The interstate initiative Highland Society aims to protect the area's scenery, to promote tourism, and to establish bonds with Oceana East Hills.
