The Osburger Hochwald lies southeast of the Osburger Hunsrück and has an area of 75 square kilometres. Together with the Schwarzwalder Hochwald, it forms the Hochwald or "upland forest" of the Hunsrück, the southwestern part of the Rhenish Massif in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate. The area belongs to the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park. Northeast of the Hochwald are the Idar Forest and Soonwald.
At the foot of the Rösterkopf rises the River Ruwer, a right tributary of the Moselle. The watershed between the Moselle and the Saar runs through the Osburger Hochwald. The B 52 federal road and A 1 motorway, as well as several local, county and state roads, run through the forest. There are rescue points for the emergency services at various prominent places in the forest.
