Route description

Maryland Route 259 begins at an acute intersection with Maryland Route 794 (Southern Maryland Boulevard). Heading south on MD 794 leads to Maryland Route 258, as well as on-ramps to the Maryland Route 4 expressway, which is also known as Southern Maryland Boulevard. The road heads northeast as a two-lane road with a speed limit of 45 mph (72 km/h) through an area of farms. One of those farms is the historic James Owens Farm, which is located 0.8 mi (1.3 km) north of the southern terminus. After an intersection with Brookswood Road, MD 258 turns north and meets its end at Maryland Route 408 (Mount Zion Road) in the hamlet of Greenock near Lothian.
