Route description[edit]

PA Route 880 in Logan Township

At the top of the mountain, PA 880 enters Logan Township in Clinton County and becomes West Valley Road, turning north to descend the mountain. The route heads into an agricultural valley and turns east in Tylersville, soon curving to the northeast. The road continues east-northeast through more farmland with some trees and homes, passing through Booneville and heading into Greene Township. Farther east, PA 880 crosses into Loganton and becomes West Main Street, passing homes. In the center of town, the route crosses PA 477 and becomes East Main Street, running through more residential areas. The road crosses back into Greene Township and becomes East Valley Road, continuing through more agricultural areas with some woods and homes a short distance to the south of forested Sugar Valley Mountain. In Carroll, PA 880 turns north onto Rauchtown Road, with East Valley Road continuing east to an interchange with I-80. The route heads through wooded areas with some residences, crossing a gap in Sugar Valley Mountain. At this point, the road passes under the eastbound lanes of I-80, running within the wide median of the interstate for a distance before passing under the westbound lanes. After this, PA 880 passes a few fields as it turns northwest, crossing into the Tiadaghton State Forest and heading into Crawford Township. The route turns to the north and runs through more of the state forest before passing through Big Rock and running near Ravensburg State Park. Farther north, the road leaves the state forest and passes through residential Rauchtown, heading through more wooded areas.[2][4]

PA 880 crosses into Limestone Township in Lycoming County and becomes an unnamed road, heading north-northwest into agricultural areas before turning northeast. The route passes through more farmland with some woods and development before ending at PA 44.[2][5]
