Walhalla, SC

This town is the county seat of Oconee County.

Nestled in the shadows of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, and cradled by the cool waters of the Chattooga River, Walhalla has all the necessary components for quintessential southern charm.

Founded in 1850 and located in Upstate South Carolina, Walhalla is a city rich in heritage. As the county seat of Oconee County, the city is home to the school district and county administrative offices, as well as several other large county employers.

The City of Walhalla will be the terminus to South Carolina’s longest pedestrian and bicycle trail, The Palmetto Trail. The newly constructed Stumphouse Mountain Bike Park provides miles of world class mountain bike trails.

Located in the Northwest corner of the state, Walhalla is one of the last South Carolina cities to stop in before trekking into the mountains for local hiking trails, or a short, scenic drive to Lake Jocassee or Highlands, NC. One way or another, in Walhalla, you will be on the “Main Street to the Mountains.”
