The mountains are densely forested mainly by secondary spruce plantations. Most visited are the bordering Rožnovská Bečva river valley in the north (with Valašské Meziříčí and Rožnov pod Radhoštěm towns and Dolní, Prostřední and Horní (i.e. Lower, Middle and Upper) Bečva resorts) and the southern Vsetínská Bečva river valley starting in the town of Vsetín with the resort of Velké Karlovice.
The Hostýnsko-vsetínská hornatina Range is a part of the Western Carpathians, it is divided by the Bečva River valley into the lower eastern Hostýnské vrchy and the higher western Vsetínské vrchy which are a part of the Beskydy Landscape Protected Area. They are built mainly of flysch deposits and their high sediments in both Bečva rivers valleys. The flysch slopes are rather unstable and thus small landslides are typical for this area. The highest point is Vysoká (i.e. High Mountain), at 1,024 m (3,360 ft), in the easternmost part of the range.
