PA 215 begins at an intersection with US 6N in Conneaut Township, Erie County, heading north on two-lane undivided Kidders Corner Road. The road runs through agricultural areas with some homes, turning northeast and crossing the wooded Conneaut Creek into Springfield Township. In this area, the route becomes Summerville Road and runs north through a mix of farmland and woodland with occasional residences, crossing the Canadian National's Bessemer Subdivision railroad line. Farther north, PA 215 comes to an interchange with I-90. After this, the route heads through more rural areas as an unnamed road and reaches the residential community of East Springfield. In this area, the road comes to an intersection with US 20. PA 215 heads north through more farmland with some homes, becoming Academy Street.
