The Heuchelberg and the adjacent Stromberg region south of the River Zaber both give their names to the Stromberg-Heuchelberg Nature Park founded in 1980, the third nature park in Baden-Württemberg.

The Heuchelberg runs through the western part of the county of Heilbronn between Leingarten in the northeast and Zaberfeld in the southwest. It lies on the territories of the following towns and villages (clockwise from the northeast): Leingarten, Nordheim, Brackenheim, Güglingen, Pfaffenhofen and Zaberfeld (in the southwest) and Eppingen (only the municipality of Kleingartach), Schwaigern and finally Leingarten again.
