Route description[edit]

SR 204 begins at an intersection with SR 3 (Kings Highway) just north of Potomac Mills, the former site of a mill on Popes Creek. The state highway heads straight east-northeast through a forested area with intermittent farmland. As SR 204 approaches George Washington Birthplace National Monument, the state highway passes between fields and is flanked by rows of trees. The state highway reaches its eastern terminus at the entrance to the national monument, just east of which is a four-leg roundabout that contains in its center a replica of the Washington Monument.[1][2]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Westmoreland County.
