Korok Forest is located at the center of the Lost Woods in the Great Hyrule Forest. In order to access the Forest, Link must follow the direction of the Wind in the Lost Woods. The Great Deku Tree is known to be the protector of Korok Forest, and it is also home to a variety of Koroks.[3] The primary feature of the Forest is the Pedestal of the Master Sword, which houses the Master Sword when it is not in use. Keo Ruug Shrine is also situated at the base of the Great Deku Tree. An Ogre Tree east of the Pedestal serves as the exit to Korok Forest, returning Link to the entrance of the Lost Woods when he steps into its mouth.[4]

During the Era of Prosperity 100 years ago, Link entered the Korok Forest at around the age of 12 or 13 and pulled the Master Sword from its Pedestal.[5] After Link fell on the day of the Great Calamity, Zelda returned the Master Sword to its Pedestal, hoping that he would find it again after his Slumber of Restoration.[6] She attempted to leave a message for the Great Deku Tree to relay to Link,[7] though he insisted that it would be better for Link to hear her words directly from her.[8] The events of Zelda and the Great Deku Tree's conversation can be seen during "The Master Sword" Recovered Memory, which Link obtains as part of "The Hero's Sword" Main Quest.

In preparation for Link's inevitable return to Korok Forest, the Koroks prepared a series of Korok Trials to help guide him to the Ancient Shrines in the Lost Woods.[9] Eventually, the Trials became rites of passage for young Koroks.[10] These Trials can be found by following the Signs or Bean Lamps throughout Korok Forest.[11][12] The Goddess Statue of Korok Forest in located within the Great Deku Tree's Navel.

When Link first enters Korok Forest, he will be directed towards the Pedestal of the Master Sword. If he attempts to pull the Master Sword, he will receive a vision of several Recovered Memories, and the voice of Zelda reminds him that he is the hope of Hyrule.[13] The Great Deku Tree then awakens, recognizing Link from 100 years prior.[14] He informs Link that he once wielded the Master Sword, though he warns him that he may currently be too weak to do so now.[15] After speaking to the Great Deku Tree, "The Hero's Sword" Main Quest will begin.

Initially, three separate Side Quests can be obtained in Korok Forest, those being "Legendary Rabbit Trial",[16] "Riddles of Hyrule",[17] and "The Korok Trials".[18] In addition to these are three Shrine Quests can be found at the edges of Korok Forest, which are "Trial of Second Sight",[19] "The Lost Pilgrimage",[20] and "The Test of Wood".[21] After "The Hero's Sword" Main Quest is completed and Hestu returns to Korok Forest, the "A Freezing Rod" Side Quest will become available.[22]

When The Master Trials Downloadable Content Pack is available, the "EX Trial of the Sword" Side Quest will take place at Korok Forest.[23] As part of this Side Quest, Link will be able to access the Sword Monk's Shrine from the Pedestal of the Master Sword.[24]
