The B68 is a fairly short B-road in east Londonderry.
The road starts on the A6 in the centre of Dungiven and heads north, initially running parallel to the B64 (which it never meets) until the two roads diverge near Scriggan. At this point the B68 is on a short detour to the east to avoid crossing the River Roe and after Scriggan it bends round to the west again and starts running more-or-less due north.
The B68 remains on the right bank of the River Roe for its entire journey, although remaining above the valley which is visible to the left. As there is only one bridge across the river between the two ends of the B68 (appearing a mile or so after Scriggan), very few roads actually head off to the left but there are plenty to the right.
Presently the B68 reaches the outskirts of Limavady and runs northwards into town along Irish Green Street. The road ends at a set of traffic lights in the town centre, where it merges into the A371 one-way loop.
