Scenic ByWay Map

The Meriwether-Pike Scenic Byway was approved on March 17, 2005 by the Georgia Department of Transportation. The Byway celebrates the unique legacy of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and retraces some of FDR's favorite routes through Meriwether County, many of which have changed very little in the past 70 years. During the 1920's, 30's, and 40's, President Roosevelt came to Warm Springs in hopes that the therapeutic warm springs would help improve his polio-stricken legs. He built his home in Warm Springs, known world-wide as The Little White House.

Travelers can pick up the route at any point throughout the 55-mile loop; however the logical departure point is the Warm Springs Welcome Center, a re-creation of the train depot where FDR would arrive into Warm Springs. This 55-mile route begins at Warm Springs, Georgia on SR 85. It continues north to Gay and then moves west on the SR 109 spur back to Gay. From Gay, the route extends eastbound along Flat Shoals Road across the Flint River and turns southwest on SR 18 to Molena. The route follows SR 18 back to SR 85 south of Woodbury to Manchester and proceeds to follow SR 190 back to Warm Springs.
