Run back to the lilypad and face the Great Deku Tree. Just to the left there is a Boko Bulb. It looks similar to a Boko Baba's roots, but is slightly discolored. Link can jump into this boko bulb and it will launch him into the air.

One of the Koroks tells you to fly to him so that you can get to the Forbidden Woods. Notice you now have a small green bar underneath your health, this is your magic meter. You can fly with the Deku Leaf as long as you have magic. If your magic runs out, you will fall to the ground.

OPTIONAL: Before jumping to the Korok, there is another area even further up. If you jump off the ledge and fly to the boko bulb, you can shoot yourself higher and glide to the highest portion of this area. Walk through the passage to get outside.

Play the Wind's Requiem and change the wind so that it is blowing to the north. Now leap off the ledge and use your Deku Leaf to glide on over to the line island here. You can speak to the man here who is impressed about your ability to fly. He asks if you can hit the switch that is at the top of the Forest Haven.

Pull out your Bait Bag and select a Hyoi Pear. Use the Pear and a Seagull will come down and grab it. You will now be able to control the seagull.

Link can drop down into this area here to find the Nintendo Gallery. Also, since the ladder has fallen, Link now has easy access to this island from the sea, without having to travel through the Forest Haven.

The Nintendo Gallery is a completely optional side quest that does not really have much of a reward, outside of just completing the game 100%. This is the only side quest that is NOT being covered in this guide.

If you did sidetrack to reach the Nintendo Gallery, you'll have to return to the Forest Haven the same way you originally entered the area. Once inside, scale the room using the boko bulbs to reach the point where you initially got the Deku Leaf.

From where you acquired the Deku Leaf, jump towards the Korok and pull out your Deku Leaf. You will use it to float over to him. It's easiest to adjust the camera so you can see below you. Once your shadow reaches the next section, you can let go of the leaf by pressing A. Cut down the grass to fill up on magic and then head outside.

Cut down the grass for some extra magic and blow the wind northwest. This part can be tricky. You have to time your jump just right so that you float over the small cyclone so it pushes you upward.
