The Woodpecker Trail is a scenic and historic route along state routes 25/121. The 620-mile route, once billed as "the shortest route to Florida's West Coast," stretches from Charlotte, N.C, to St. Petersburg, Fla. The Metter Welcome Center, a fully restored 1928 Lumber Mill commissary, is located on the Woodpecker Trail (Ga 121) at I-16 Exit 104. Total mileage through Georgia is 204 miles, from Augusta to Folkston.

Established in 1947 by the Woodpecker Route Association, the route was well traveled from the 1950s to 1970s. The probable origin of the name is the numerous woodpeckers that inhabit the pine forests along the route.
