Where can I find the Skull Key in Stardew Valley?

You can obtain the Skull Key by reaching the bottom of The Mines at the 120th level and opening the chest with the Skull Key inside.

It will take days to get through this chore because you'll lose energy with each outing. You should spend your time unlocking checkpoints to start each trip closer to 120.

Make sure you have a pickaxe that you can upgrade and food that you can eat to regain health and energy. Once you've obtained the Skull Key, you'll get the message, "you found a strange-looking key in the bottom of The Mines."
