Where to find Trail Ruins in Minecraft

To get the Armor Trims or new pottery shards, or to just explore the secretive structure, you’ll first need to find it. Thankfully, Trail Ruins can be found in two of the game’s biomes:

  • Underwater in the Ocean Biome
  • In Sparse Jungles

Once you’re in one of these two biomes, you’ll want to keep an eye out for any Suspicious Sand or Suspicious Gravel. Underneath some of these blocks will be Trail Ruins.

They can be single ruined structures or entire villages so it’s always worth checking what’s around and exploring these brand-new locations.
