Route description

SR 61 begins at US 98 as an unsigned route, heading north on US 319, until it splits off with the highway in Crawfordville and becomes County Road 61. It turns east towards Shadeville Highway (former State Road 365), where afterwards, it runs north as Wakulla Springs Road.

The main, signed portion of SR 61 begins at the Leon County line, where it continues north and eventually rejoins US 319 just south of Capital Circle. Heading north towards the capitol building, it meets State Road 363 and swaps roads, with SR 61 crossing over to Crawfordville Road and continuing north as Adams Street. The swapping ends at Paul Russell Road and then joins with US 27 as Monroe Street. SR 61 leaves downtown Tallahassee as Thomasville Road and just north of I-10, it reunites with US 319 and heads north. US 319 and SR 61 stay concurrent from there until the road ends at the Georgia state line and continues there as State Route 35.
