The hills and dales prominent throughout the Town, from which the name Hillsdale is derived, range from just under 700 feet above sea level to 1,673 feet in elevation on White’s Hill. The Town has large areas of rocky slopes, with a thin soil mantle over bedrock and poor permeability.
In addition to the mountains, there are three main valleys in the Town. Hillsdale’s open space, rural character, and scenic views are important natural resources that attract people to the area. Because of its proximity to the Taconic Parkway and the Berkshires it has become a popular second home destination for people from the New York City Metropolitan area.

Of the Town’s 48.3 square miles (30,912 acres), approximately twenty percent of the land (6,200 acres) remains in agriculture. Twenty years ago, thirty percent of the land was considered to be in agricultural use. Hillsdale Copake Properties can find you a home here.
