The highway starts at the U.S. border and ends at the Saskatchewan boundary 13.6 kilometres west of Roblin. Along the way it passes through the communities of Cartwright, Glenboro, Carberry, Neepawa, McCreary, Ste. Rose Du Lac, Grandview, Gilbert Plains.
Between the western junction with PTH 10 and Ste. Rose Du Lac, this segment is called the Northern Woods and Water Route. The highway is also the main route through Spruce Woods Provincial Park between Glenboro and Carberry.
PTH 5, along with PTH 20 and PTH 50, has the distinction of being both a north-south and east-west highway, although PTH 20 maintains its north-south designation for the entire route. From the Canada – United States border to PTH 68 east of Ste. Rose du Lac, PTH 5 is designated as a north-south highway. From PTH 68 to the Saskatchewan border, the highway's designation changes to east-west.
In 1980, the highway was extended to its current southbound terminus, replacing PR 258 between Neepawa and PTH 3 at Cartwright, via Glenboro and Carberry, and PTH 28 between the U.S. border and Cartwright.
The section between PTH 20 and PTH 10 south of Dauphin was completed and opened to traffic in 1959. Prior to this, PTH 5 turned north at Ochre River and entered Dauphin from the east along what is now PTH 20 and PTH 20A. PTH 5 met PTH 10 south in Dauphin's city centre, from which the two highways continued out of the city in concurrence following the current PTH 5A/10A route (2nd Avenue N.W. / Buchanon Ave.).
