The route of SC 68 travels generally in a northwest to southeast direction, beginning at a junction with U.S. Highway 278 (US 278 just south of Varnville. The highway travels in a nearly straight line for its entire length, paralleling the Port Royal and Augusta Railway. The roadway passes through the small hamlet of Early Branch before widening to a four-lane configuration about one mile (1.6 km) north of the I-95 junction. Passing underneath I-95, SC 68 returns to a two-lane configuration as it enters Yemassee before terminating at an intersection with US 17 Alternate and US 21.
Established in 1967 as a renumbering of SC 28, it has remained unchanged since. Prior to the current routing, SC 68 had two previous incarnations: In 1937-38 from Clio to the North Carolina state line (renumbered as SC 83), and in 1938-47 as a short highway spur from US 78 in Denmark.
The entire route is in Hampton County.
