Geography

Hebron's beautiful hills and valleys are part of the slate valley of the Upper Taconic Mountains (Taghkanic, meaning 'in the trees'), and part of the Great Appalachian Valley (also known simply as the 'Great Valley'). Thus, many of the main hills, valleys, creeks and roads run diagonal across Hebron in keeping with the general outlay of the Appalachians.

Hebron is notably at once a nexus between valley regions within the 'Great Valley', and also between mountain regions. In Hebron is the nexus of the Champlain and Hudson Valleys (described in greater detail below in the paragraph on watersheds). The taller peaks of the Taconics this far north are on the Vermont side of the border, and begin to dwindle comparatively into foothills in Hebron. Hebron can be described as the foothills between the Adirondack Mountains of New York, and the Taconic and Green Mountains of Vermont. Hebron thus is ironically at once at a high point dividing valleys, and a lowlands dividing mountain areas. In an era of much water pollution, it is a good thing to be on the top end of watersheds. Thus, much of Hebron's battles with water quality are internal.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 56.4 square miles (146.1 km²), of which, 56.2 square miles (145.7 km²) of it is land and 0.2 square miles (0.5 km²) of it (0.32%) is water.

The east town line of Hebron is the Vermont Border, and the beginning of New England proper. The town of Salem is adjacent to the south. The towns of Argyle, Hartford and Granville (famous for its colored slate) make up the remaining border on western and northern edges.
