Statt hoher Berge und tiefer Täler dominieren im Spessart sanfte Hügel, naturbelassene Talauen und grüne Wiesen. Dichte Wälder wechseln sich ab mit offenen Landschaften, die herrliche Ausblicke in das Kinzigtal und über die bewaldeten Spessartkuppen bis in die Rhön freigeben.
Eine bunte Baumvielfalt und zahlreiche alte Waldbestände mit stattlichen Buchen und urigen Eichen prägen das Landschaftsbild und dienen auch dem Namensgeber des Spessarts, dem Specht, als Wohn- und Lebensraum. Als größtes zusammenhängendes Laubmischwaldgebiet Deutschlands ist der Spessart nicht nur Heimat vieler Pflanzen und Tiere, sondern auch gleichzeitig eine märchenhafte Wanderkulisse.
