The Spessart is a mountain range straddling the Bavaria and Hesse regions in Germany. It is bordered on three sides by the Main River. Two parks, Bavarian Spessart and Hessian Spessart, are located in the nearby hills.
Although the Spessart, a low mountain range in northwestern Bavaria and southern Hesse, forms a roughly circular mountain range, its main ridge extends from the southwest to the northeast. It is continued by the Odenwald in the southwest, and by the Rhön in the northeast. The Spessart range is nearly surrounded by water, being bordered on three sides by the Main River.
The highest point in the Spessart is the Geiersberg peak, reaching 586m (1,923 ft.), more than 400m (1,300 ft.) above the Main River valley. The region is sparsely populated. Two nature parks, the Bavarian Spessart, and the Hessian Spessart, occupy large portions of the nearby foothills.
 Area forests
The forests of the Spessart are known for the quality of their wood. The brown Spessart Oak, in particular, is renowned for its tight, straight grain; it is used for fine furniture, millwork, and flooring.
