Class I-II Apalachicola River, FL

Apalachicola River Blueway (Lake Seminole to Gulf of Mexico)

The river flows 107 miles from the Jim Woodruff Dam to its mouth under the John Gorrie Bridge in Apalachicola. The scenery is magnificent, and the river, sloughs, coves, and bluffs are delightful to explore. Numerous meandering narrow, twisting creeks flow through vast tracts of national forest. Kayaks and canoes are ideal ways to experience the river and the area’s natural habitat, and many of the best places are accessible only by paddling. In order to encourage safe and enjoyable paddling on and around the river (and to keep paddlers from getting lost), the Apalachicola River Blueway was created and mapped. The Apalachicola River Blueway is designated a State Paddling Trail by Florida Department of Environmental Protection. (Apalachicola Riverkeeper)
