SR 211 begins at an intersection with SR 42 (Main Street) in the town of Timberville. The state highway heads east as two-lane New Market Road, which parallels the North Fork Shenandoah River to the south. SR 211 crosses the RockinghamShenandoah county line and continues as Old Cross Road. The state highway passes to the south of New Market Airport and veers away from the river before meeting the southern end of SR 305 (George Collins Parkway), which provides access to the New Market Battlefield, which commemorates the Civil War Battle of New Market. Just east of SR 305, SR 211 reaches its eastern terminus at its diamond interchange with I-81.
