Sopchoppy River Paddling Trail

Boats of all types share the lower river, but the Sopchoppy “long twisting river” narrows impassibly to motorboats further upstream. Those who push on in kayaks and canoes are richly rewarded with a true wilderness experience on this 15 mile paddling trail. Small trickling streams seep from the deep earthen banks of the river as it winds underneath a dense canopy of trees. The Bradwell Bay area borders the upper Sopchoppy River and provides the tannins that gives the river its characteristic dark tea color. It is possible to park and shuttle from the Sopchoppy City Park for a shorter 10 mile trip. Easy to moderate.
