Route description

Johnson County

KY 201 begins at an intersection with U.S. Route 23 (US 23) north of Paintsville, within Johnson County. It travels to the northwest and curves to a northerly direction. It begins paralleling Goose Fork and has three crossings of the Fork before It intersects KY 1559. The two highway begin a concurrency at this point. They curve to the south-southwest and enter Sitka. There, they curve to the west and pass a U.S. Post Office before they split. KY 201 crosses over Toms Creek and curves to the north and northeast. It then ends its paralleling of Goose Fork before it curves to the north-northwest. It intersects the eastern terminus of KY 1092 northeast of Kerz. It begins paralleling Hood Creek. It curves to the northeast and crosses the creek twice before it curves to the north-northwest. It crosses over the creek, Fitch, Morning, and Sloane branches and intersects the northern terminus of KY 3387 (Head of Hood). Almost immediately after this intersection, KY 201 enters Lawrence County and Davisville.[1]

Lawrence County

It crosses over Ramey and Tarkiln branches before entering Blaine. It crosses Muddy Branch before it begins a brief concurrency with KY 32. The two highway travel to the east-southeast and cross over Hood Creek. They immediately curve to the north-northeast and split. KY 201 crosses over Burton Branch, begins paralleling Blaine Creek, and leaves Blaine. It crosses over the creek and travels through Cherokee. The highway crosses over Able, Griffin, and Sawmill branches. Then, it crosses over Cherokee Creek. Just before it curves to the northwest, it crosses over Dry Fork and begins paralleling it. It crosses over Camp, Thompson, Wildlick branches before it crosses over Dry Fork again. It has one final crossing of Dry Fork just before it meets its northern terminus, an intersection with KY 1 in Webbville.[1]
