The road starts at traffic lights on the A6038 Otley Road, to the north of Shipley town centre, and heads north along Baildon Road, climbing steeply out of the valley.
The road levels out and heads straight towards a crag which is too high to climb. However, the road bears to the right almost at the last minute and climbs a more user-friendly (but still steep) hill into the centre of Baildon. It ends at the Browgate roundabout in the village centre. No other roads here are classified.
