Route descriptionEdit

 
Route 267 northbound in Lawton

PA 267 begins at an intersection with US 6 in the borough of Meshoppen in Wyoming County, heading north on two-lane undivided Bridge Street in a commercial area. The route crosses the Meshoppen Creek, turning west onto Canal Street and curving northwest past a mix of homes and businesses. PA 267 heads north onto Oak Street and leaves Meshoppen for Meshoppen Township, at which point it becomes an unnamed road that runs through dense forests. The road curves northwest before heading to the north again.[2][3]

PA 267 enters Auburn Township in Susquehanna County and heads through a mix of farmland and woodland with some homes. The road curves to the north-northeast and runs through more rural areas, turning north and passing through Auburn Center. The route runs through more agricultural and wooded areas with some residences, passing through Rushboro before turning northwest and crossing into Susquehanna County. PA 267 heads north-northwest through more forested areas with some fields and homes, coming to an intersection with the northern terminus of PA 367 in Lawton. The road continues northwest and comes to an intersection with PA 706 a short distance later. At this point, PA 267 turns east-southeast for a concurrency with PA 706, crossing the East Branch Wyalusing Creek. PA 267 splits from PA 706 by turning northeast, heading through forests with some fields and homes to the east of the Middle Branch Wyalusing Creek. The road curves to the north and runs through more rural areas, turning northeast and passing through a small corner of Middletown Township before heading into Forest Lake Township. The route passes through Birchardville and curves to the north again as it runs through more forests with some farm fields and residences. The road continues north through more rural areas of forests, entering Choconut Township and turning northeast before heading back to the north. PA 267 heads through more forested areas with some farmland and homes to the east of Choconut Creek, passing through Choconut before coming to the New York border. At this point, the road continues north into that state as NY 26.[2][4]
