Highway 361 begins at Highway 25 at Saffell in southwestern Lawrence County. The route runs east before turning north and crossing the Strawberry River. Following the crossing, Highway 361 curves north and passes through agricultural areas before intersecting Highway 25 in Lynn, where it terminates.
Black Rock to Davidsonville Historic State Park
Highway 361 begins at Highway 117 (Elm St) in Black Rock. The highway runs north to cross the Spring River on the Lawrence/Randolph county line and enter Randolph County. Continuing north, Highway 361 enters Davidsonville Historic State Park, where the route terminates. The roadway continues north as Highway 166.
