Add To Trip Planner Directions

Some 50 miles in length, the Sopchoppy is a beautiful river with high, narrow limestone banks and unique cypress tree formations flowing through the Apalachicola National Forest and beyond. Numerous white sandbars make for enticing rest stops. Deer can often be seen along the shore or swimming across the tea-colored river. In spring, wild azalea and other flowering plants add color along the banks where the Florida National Scenic Trail follows portions of the river.
