The highway runs through the eastern part of the Ozarks and passes through two sections of the Mark Twain National Forest and near Johnson Shut-ins State Park and Taum Sauk Mountain. Lesterville and Annapolis, as well as Johnson Shut-ins State Park, were evacuated in 2005 following a reservoir failure at the Taum Sauk pumped storage plant.

Route 49 is one of the original 1922 state highways. It only ran between Glover and Piedmont and was later extended.
