Adelina Road continues south as a county highway toward the unincorporated community of Adelina and the historic home Taney Place, which was the birthplace of Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney. MD 508 heads north as a two-lane road through a forested area with scattered residences. The state highway reaches its northern terminus at MD 231 (Hallowing Point Road) near Barstow.[1][2]
