LOCATION The Mountains

Walhalla is the Main Street to the Mountains. Founded by German immigrants who left from Hamburg, they found this place to be a little piece of heaven and a "garden of the gods," which is the loose translation for Walhalla. Located at in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this area is spattered with breathtaking views, white water rapids, rivers, trails, and lakes.
