The Qurth Forest was located along the southern coast of the Lake of Steam and just west of the city of Derlusk.[1][2]

Various towns and ruins bordered the forest with the Barony of the Great Oak on the southwest side. The River Scelptar flowed southwest from its source in the Qurth Forest into the Inner Sea.[2]

After the Spellplague, the land was slowly turning into a desert, and the forest was a tiny remnant of its former self.[3]
