Route description[edit]

PA 957 begins at an intersection with US 6 in Columbus Township, heading east-northeast on two-lane undivided Pike Road. The route runs through the residential community of Columbus before continuing east into agricultural areas with a few homes as an unnamed road. The road runs through Wilbur Crossing before continuing through rural areas and entering Freehold Township, where it passes through the community of Wells Corners. Farther east, PA 957 runs through areas of farms and woods before crossing a Western New York and Pennsylvania Railroad line and intersecting PA 958. At this point, PA 958 turns east to form a concurrency with PA 957 and the road passes more farms as it comes to the residential community of Lottsville. Here, PA 958 turns to the south and PA 957 continues northeast through more farmland and woodland with some homes.[2][3]
