SC 252 begins at a partial interchange with US 76/US 178 (Belton Highway) southeast of Anderson, and south of Meadow Brook, within Anderson County. It travels to the east-southeast and crosses Neals Creek before an intersection with SC 413. The highway begins curving to the southeast and crosses over Hencoop Creek before entering Craytonville. There, it intersects SC 20 Connector (SC 20 Conn.; Clinkscales Road), which connects SC 252 with SC 20 (Trail Road), since they do not intersect. A short distance later, SC 252 travels under a bridge that carries SC 20. On the southeast side of Craytonville, it has another intersection with SC 252 Conn. The highway traveled to the east and crosses Barkers Creek. Then, the highway starts traveling to the east-northeast and crosses Blue Barker Creek, just before entering Honea Path.[1]

One block later, US 178 splits off to the right, onto Church Street. US 76/SC 252 continue to the east. They split northwest of Honea Path Elementary School.

Between Summit Drive and Edgewood Drive, the highway enters Greenwood County. At East Fleming Street, SC 252 turns left, while SC 252 Truck continues along North Greenwood Avenue. About one block later, it intersects US 25 Business (US 25 Bus.), onto which SC 252 turns left. The two highways travel concurrently to the north-northwest. Just before leaving town, they curve to the northeast. They cross over the Saluda River on the Senator William H. "Billy" O'Dell Bridge, which marks the Laurens County line. They curve to a due north direction and curve to the east-northeast and meet US 25 at an interchange. Here, US 25 Bus. ends, while SC 252 continues to the east-northeast. It curves to the northeast and crosses Walnut Creek. The highway travels through Poplar Springs. Then, it crosses over the Reedy River and Rabon Creek. A short distance later, it meets its eastern terminus, an intersection with US 76 (West Main Street).[1][2]
