Cabeswater is a magical forest situated on the Ley Line that the teens discover in The Raven Boys. It is described multiple times as being inherently magical and ancient, with a sort of charged energy. In theory, Cabeswater is quite large, with easily changeable characteristics that, more often than not, attend to the needs of the teenagers. Inside, the forest has many magical features that the teenagers explore, such as a hollowed-out tree that shows the occupant visions.
The Trees Edit

Adam Parrish Edit
In the Raven Boys, Adam Parrish sacrifices himself to be Cabeswater's 'hands and eyes.' This consequently awakens the ley line, and establishes a deep, innermost connection between Adam and the forest. The sacrifice implies that Adam is to help the current of the ley line's energy flow, much like an electrical circut board. In doing so, Cabeswater remains strengthened.
