The highway begins at an intersection with SR-52 southeast of Westmoreland. It goes southward as Green Grove Road and passes into Trousdale County. Upon approaching Hartsville SR-141 turns east and runs a short concurrency with SR-10 and SR-25 before turning south again as Broadway toward downtown Hartsville. In downtown, SR-141 turns east for two blocks as East Main St then once again turns south as River St. upon leaving Hartsville.
After leaving Hartsville, SR-141 crosses the Cumberland River and is briefly known only as Highway 141 before crossing into Wilson County. SR-141, now known as Hartsville Pike, turns southwest and continues into Lebanon. In Lebanon, SR-141 once again turns eastward as it runs a brief concurrency with Highway 70/SR-26 as East High St. SR-141 ends its concurrency with Highway 70 and continues east as Trousdale Ferry Pike while running parallel to Interstate 40. SR-141 enters Smith County as it is still parallel to Interstate 40. It then moves south of the interstate at Exit 254 and starts a concurrency with SR-53. SR-141/SR-53 runs closely parallel to the interstate, crossing over the interstate and then back under it as the highway approaches Gordonsville.
Upon entering Gordonsville, SR-141 ends its concurrency with SR-53 and starts one with SR-264. This concurrency continues east through town before ending east of town. SR-141 continues southeast, then south, and then southeast once again as it traverses rugged terrain. It then crosses Smith Fork Creek and enters the small community of Lancaster as the road is generally heading east. After leaving Lancaster, SR-141 abruptly turns south-southwestward and closely parallels the Caney Fork River as it enters DeKalb County.
SR-141 continues generally southward until reaching Center Hill Dam. At this point, SR-141 starts a concurrency with SR-96. This concurrency turns northeastward and goes across the dam, then SR-96 splits off and SR-141 continues east as Wolf Creek Road. SR-141 then continues into Putnam County and turns into Center Hill Dam Road. The road then continues east until it reaches its eastern terminus at Smithville Highway in Silver Point.
