Created in the mid-1930s, this two-lane spur highway, whose entire length is just 0.40 miles (0.64 km), provides access to Shawnee State Park from State Route 73.

Starting from a ranger station at the entrance to Shawnee State Park, State Route 371 starts out heading northerly, then bending to the northeast, bounded by woods on the west side and fields on the east side, with a couple of residences lining the route. After just 0.40 miles (0.64 km), State Route 371 comes to an end as it meets State Route 73.[3]
