A number of segments for County Road 2 exist throughout Northwest Florida. The westernmost extent travels 9.431 miles through Okaloosa County, between SR 189 at Blackman and SR 85 southwest of Laurel Hill. The second portion of CR 2 extends 13.21 miles southeast from Laurel Hill along a combination of 4th Street, Chicago Avenue and Steel Mill Creek Road into Walton County to Gordon and U.S. 301.

An implied overlap takes County Road 2 along side U.S. 331 to a point east of New Harmony. CR 2 begins again and meanders northeast 19.44 miles to Caney Creek, Darlington and SR 81 at Royals Crossroads. A few miles south of that end is the beginning of the State Road 2 portion, which traverses areas just south of the Alabama state line to the Chattahoochee River into southwest Georgia.

State Road 2 also exists through northern Columbia and Baker Counties, bridging the gap between segments of Georgia 94 through Osceola National Forest. Georgia 94 crosses the southern notch of Charlton County between the SR 2 end at Baxter and Saint George, entering Florida again as the easternmost portion of County Road 2. Nassau County 2 travels just 1.38 miles between the east end of GA 94 and CR 121 near Kent.
