PA 304 begins at an intersection with PA 45 in the borough of Mifflinburg in Union County, heading southeast on two-lane undivided South 4th Street. The road heads through residential areas before crossing into Limestone Township. In this area, the route heads south into open agricultural areas with a few homes, becoming an unnamed road. PA 304 curves southeast and reaches the residential community of Dice, continuing through a mix of farmland and woodland with a few residences. The road turns northeast through more open agricultural lands until it crosses into the borough of New Berlin. At this point, the name of the route becomes and it passes several homes, coming to an intersection with the northern terminus of PA 204. After passing through more of the town, PA 304 heads back into agricultural areas with some residences and becomes County Line Road as it runs to the north of Penns Creek.

LocationMifflinburg, Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Route 304 Truck (PA 304 Truck) is a 2.2-mile-long (3.5 km) truck route in and around Mifflinburg.[4] Narrow streets within the borough are avoided by this designation, and a complicated intersection with Pennsylvania Route 45, which does not contain turning lanes, is bypassed. The route is concurrent with other highways for its entire length: It is cosigned with PA 104 for the first 1.7 miles (2.7 km) of the route, and is designated SR 3004 (Red Ridge Road) for the remainder.[4] It is signed in the eastbound direction only, with the opposite direction signed as PA 45 Truck.[4]
