Tanners Falls is centered on the intersection of Upper Woods Road (Pennsylvania Route 4007, or PA-4007) and Tanners Falls Road (part of PA-4017). Six more state routes also run through the village: Hancock Highway (part of PA-191); Bethany Turnpike (part of PA-670); Beech Grove Road (PA-4005); Niles Pond Road (PA-4019), which connects to Hancock; Egypt Drive; and Egypt Road. The last two are part of the aforementioned PA-4017; the latter connects to Tanners Falls and the former connects to the former. All of these roads are paved.
