Route description 
MD 586 looking east at the crossing of Turkey Branch
MD 586 begins at an intersection with MD 28 and MD 911 in Rockville. Veirs Mill Road continues west as MD 28 west, which heads toward downtown Rockville and provides access to northbound MD 355. First Street heads north as eastbound MD 28 and south as MD 911, which provides a connection to southbound MD 355. MD 586 heads southeast as a four-lane divided highway flanked by service roads on both sides that serve the dense residential subdivisions between which the highway passes. The service roads end at the eastern limits of Rockville, where the state highway intersects Twinbrook Parkway and crosses Rock Creek. After intersecting Aspen Hill Road, MD 586 passes between Rock Creek Regional Park on the south and the southwestern edge of the residential subdivisions of Aspen Hill on the north. Residential subdivisions surround the highway on both sides again shortly before the highway crosses Turkey Branch. MD 586 expands to six lanes shortly before its intersection with Randolph Road.
MD 586 continues southeast between densely-populated residential subdivisions in Wheaton. The state highway intersects MD 185 (Connecticut Avenue) at an acute angle and reduces to four full-use lanes at Newport Mill Road, with a combination right-turn and bus lane in the eastbound direction. The westbound direction gains a third lane shortly before MD 586 enters downtown Wheaton and intersects MD 193. The state highway continues southeast with five lanes as it passes between the Wheaton Plaza shopping mall on the west and the Wheaton Metro Station on the east. MD 586 reaches its southern terminus at a directional intersection with MD 97 (Georgia Avenue). There is no access between MD 586 east and MD 97 north.
MD 586's road name is named after a water-powered grist and sawmill on Rock Creek built by Samuel Clark Veirs in 1838 and operated by his family until 1924.
