State Road 62 extends 37 miles (60 km) through unincorporated Manatee and Hardee counties, and passes through Florida scrubland, from Parrish to near Bowling Green. The paved road is only two lanes wide over its entire route. It also cuts through the Manatee River basin. The road crosses Horse Creek and the North Fork of the Manatee River. It provides access to the Tampa Bay area from Hardee County.

Inside Duette, SR 62 meets with the intersection of Keentown Road. Keentown Road is a 1.8-mile (2.9 km) dirt road that leads into the hamlet of Keentown, a farming community. There are only 3 major junctions on this highway, SR 37, CR 39, and CR 663.

5 miles (8.0 km) east of Parrish is Parrish Lake, an artificial lake. It is home to a FPL power plant and a boat ramp.

In Hardee County, the road does not turn to the left or right for 14 miles (23 km).
