Route description[edit]

PA 408 begins at an intersection with US 6/US 19 and PA 86 in Cambridge Springs, heading east-southeast on two-lane undivided Church Street and immediately crossing a Western New York and Pennsylvania Railroad line. The road passes businesses before entering residential areas. The route continues into Cambridge Township and becomes an unnamed road as it heads into agricultural areas with some homes. Upon heading into Rockdale Township, PA 408 makes a turn to the south prior to curving southeast again through more farmland with some woods and residences. The road enters Richmond Township, where it curves to the south and heads through more forested areas with some farm fields and homes. PA 408 turns west to form a short concurrency with PA 77 before heading south again. Farther south, the route makes a turn to the east and passes more farms, woods, and residences. The road continues into Steuben Township prior to coming into Townville, where it turns to the southeast. In this borough, the route runs past several homes and a few businesses. PA 408 crosses back into Steuben Township and heads back into rural areas of farmland and woodland, soon coming into Troy Township. In this area, the road intersects PA 428 and passes through more rural areas, turning more to the east. The route enters Oil Creek Township and heads into forests, soon coming into Hydetown. PA 408 curves northeast and crosses the Oil Creek, passing farm fields before entering residential areas and turning southeast onto Main Street.
