For everyone else, you need to reach The Path quest, The Reckoning. This is about 10-15 hours into the game, depending on whether or not you do a lot of side content and what difficulty setting you’re playing on. During this quest, you will be with Freyja as she returns home to try and break Odin’s hold on her. As she cannot maintain her true form, she accompanies you as a bird until you get right to the end of the level.
At the end of the level you will face a boss. Once the boss is defeated, you and Freyja leave. As you’re leaving the game will walk you through the process of destroying the mushroom vines. You need to aim at the vines and then press Square for Freyja to use her ability and then switch to your chain weapons. With the chain weapons, hold L2 and press R2 to set the sigil Freyja placed on fire. This burns through the vines and clears the path.
