Kaw Mountain is covered in rainforest and is part of the northern range of the Guiana Shield. The mountain is an obstacle to the trade winds leading to a very high humidity resulting in an abundance of plant- and animal life. The northern streams of the mountain flow into the Angélique Creek, the southern streams feed the Kaw and Mahury River.
The mountain is located near the Kaw-Roura Marshland Nature Reserve. On 12 February 2010, the General Council of French Guiana voted to protect the mountain and surrounding area as the Trésor Regional Nature Reserve.
