The Hive Access Tunnel is a room in the Temple Grounds. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and is the second room explored in the game. The room is filled with RedGrass that causes no harm to Samus's Power Suit. The room splits into two paths: one going down a shaft, the other being blocked by a violet Translator Door. Until Samus has upgraded her Scan Visor, she cannot access the room past the door.
