Loop 12 is a state highway that runs mostly within the city limits of Dallasmarker, Texasmarker. During the 1950s and 60s, Loop 12 was the outer beltway in the Dallas area, having since been supplanted by Interstate 635, which is itself being supplanted by the President George Bush Turnpike (SH 190). Loop 12 is, however, the only state highway in Dallas that forms a complete loop (Belt Line Road is also a complete loop but is not a state road except for a stretch as part of Farm to Market Road 1382).

Starting in the east at Interstate 30, Loop 12 goes north as Buckner Boulevard, following surface streets past White Rock Lakemarker. Just north of White Rock Lake, it intersects Spur 244 and becomes Northwest Highway to the west; because there is an eastern and a western segment to this part of the road, at certain points the road signs read "East Northwest Highway." It continues west along surface streets over Central Expressway (US 75) and the Dallas North Tollway and moves north of Bachman Lakemarker and Dallas Love Fieldmarker.

After crossing Interstate 35E, Loop 12 moves south as a freeway, locally known as Walton Walker Boulevard, passing Texas Stadiummarker at the interchanges with State Highways 114 and 183. The segment between I-35E (Stemmons Freeway) and Spur 408 is the only portion of Loop 12 that is freeway. It is also the only portion that leaves the Dallas city limits, as it runs through the eastern portion of Irvingmarker from Texas Stadium south to the Trinity Rivermarker.

After intersecting Interstate 30 for the second time, Loop 12 continues south, joining surface streets again west of Mountain Creek Lakemarker at Mountain Creek Parkway and Patriot Parkway (or Spur 408, which provides a southwesterly freeway link to I-20). It continues to the southeast, turning east along Ledbetter Drive, just north of Dallas Executive Airportmarker (formerly Red Bird Airport). It continues east, crossing US 67, Interstate 35E for the second time and Interstate 45. At the intersection with US 175 and Murdock Road, Loop 12 turns north again as Buckner Boulevard all the way back to Interstate 30.
