SC 216 is a short 1.2-mile (1.9 km) two-lane rural highway in the northeast corner of Cherokee County. At the state line, NC 216 continues north towards Interstate 85 and US 29 south of Kings Mountain. SC 216 passes through a partly forested area with some homes along the road as wells as intersecting three minor state secondary roads during its journey. At its eastern terminus at the Kings Mountain National Military Park entrance, the road continues east park-maintained towards York County and SC 161.
The current SC 216 was established between 1960 and 1964 as a new primary route.
The first SC 216 existed from 1939 to 1948, starting off as a 1-mile (1.6 km) spur of US 21 in Sheldon. In 1940 it was extended to a loop; but after one year, half of the loop was downgraded as secondary road. By 1948, the route was decommissioned.
The entire route is in Cherokee County.
