Highway 527 was created in the 1950s as a forest access road and designated Highway 800 in 1963. Throughout the 1960s, the route was gradually extended until it reached what is now Highway 811 in 1969. The route was designated Highway 2527 in 1976. Except within the communities of Armstrong and Gull Bay, there are no services or development along this road.
