Georgia Woodpecker Trail scenic route marker



The Woodpecker Trail has its origins as one of the named auto trails used for navigation before the United States embraced the concept of numbered highways. It ran from Greenville, South Carolina to Lake City, Florida. Eventually, the road through all three states received the number 121. In 1947, the Woodpecker Trail Association was formed to promote tourism along the route. The group was able to get permission to use the cartoon character Woody Woodpecker as the route’s mascot, and signs bearing his smiling visage were installed along the road.

With the construction of the Interstate System through the area in the late 1950s and early 1960s, however, the Woodpecker Trail faded into obscurity. In 2004, however, revived interest in the route led to Georgia passing legislation to formally designate State Route 121 as the Woodpecker Trail. The backers of the new iteration of the Woodpecker Trail were unable to secure the rights to use Woody Woodpecker on the new signs, so instead they carry the image of a more realistic woodpecker, in front of a road with an SR 121 sign next to it.

Our Georgia Woodpecker Trail sign is an exact replica of the 2004-style signs. We’ve used photos of signs in the field to ensure that every detail of the woodpecker logo is just like the ones you’ll find along the highway. Relive your memories of the drive along Georgia 121 with our faithful replica.

Our Georgia Woodpecker Trail sign is flat printed on heavy 14-gauge steel. It can be installed either outdoors or indoors, thanks to its durable, high-gloss, non-reflective finish. Mounting holes have been included, making installation even easier. It is available in the following sizes:

  • 12 inches × 12 inches
  • 16 inches × 16 inches
  • 24 inches × 24 inches (actual size)
  • 36 inches × 36 inches

We can make signs like this for most any tourism routes found along highways anywhere in the world! We also make directional signs, welcome signs, route markers of every type, and more. Got something you want that isn’t on our site? Just contact Jake to place a custom order!
