Route description[edit]

PA 249 begins at an intersection with PA 287 in the community of Middlebury Center in Middlebury Township, heading northwest on a two-lane undivided road. The route passes through a mix of farmland and forested hills, turning west and running through Kenneyville. The road continues through agricultural areas with some homes, crossing into Chatham Township and passing through Shortsville. PA 249 winds west-northwest through a mix of farmland and woodland with occasional residential development, going through the community of Little Marsh. The road heads into more forested areas and continues west before turning northwest into a mix of farms and woods, entering Westfield Township. The route heads north through more rural areas with occasional homes, crossing the Cowanesque River and reaching an intersection with PA 49 in Phillips. Here, PA 249 turns northeast to form a concurrency with PA 49 on East Main Street, heading through farmland and woodland with some residences. The road briefly passes through Brookfield Township before heading into Deerfield Township. PA 249 splits from PA 49 to the west of Knoxville by heading north on an unnamed road, running to the west of Troups Creek. The road turns to the northwest and heads through more agricultural and wooded areas with some homes. PA 249 heads back into Brookfield Township as Troups Creek Road and passes through Austinburg before reaching its northern terminus at the New York border. At this point, the road continues into that state as NY 36.[1][2]
