PA 66 and PA 948 join in opposite directions for a 3 mile wrong-way duplex through Russell City in Elk County.
Both PA 66 and PA 948 traverse the Allegheny National Forest through Elk County. One might find difficulty in believing that PA 66, which follows a path through remote areas in this forst is the same route that becomes a Turnpike expressway some 100 miles to the south. PA 948 is also a long route, quite long for a 900-series route, but remains mainly in rural areas through its trek to Ridgway and beyond.
In Chaffee, which is a tiny town of little extent beyond the upcoming intersection, PA 66 and PA 948 split apart at the western split.
PA 66 then continues through the forest.
Back at the western split, PA 948 joins PA 66 here. PA 66 ends in Kane to the north and forms an interstate duplex with I-80 near Clarion to the south. PA 948 merges with US 219 in Ridgway.
Following both PA 66 and PA 948 eastward, a sign marking the Allegheny National Forest has been erected.
Finally, the two routes split here. PA 66 heads north to US 6, and PA 948 heads south to US 219.
