State Route 776 (SR 776) is an east–west state highway located in southern Ohio. The western terminus of SR 776 is at a T-intersection with SR 335 about 6 miles (9.7 km) north of Minford. Its eastern terminus is at another T-intersection with SR 139 in Jackson.

This route was formed in the late 1930s. From its western terminus in Scioto County, SR 776 heads east in the former Teays River valley. It heads due north into Pike County briefly and then back due east into Jackson County, where it passes through forest patches. It crosses the SR 32/SR 124 divided highway (the James A. Rhodes Appalachian Highway) 5 miles (8.0 km) southwest of Jackson, before ending at SR 139 less than 1 mile (1.6 km) west of downtown Jackson.
