Route description

Maryland Route 88 starts off as Lower Beckleysville Road at Maryland Route 30 Business (Main Street) in Hampstead. After three blocks within the town, it curves to the northeast and features a roundabout with Blackrock Road and Maryland Route 833. MD 88 leaves the roundabout to the east on Blackrock Road, following a thin two-lane road as it quickly crosses the Baltimore County line.[2][3] Through here, the route follows mostly open countryside, featuring a mix of homes and forest patches as well as it cuts through the open country on a gently curvy alignment, intersecting several connecting roads in the process but not providing access to major population centers. Just before it meets its eastern end at Maryland Route 25, better known as Falls Road, the route curves 90 degrees and travels to the northeast through another small patch of forest for a short stretch. The end of the road is located to the north of Butler.[1][3]
