Flint Rock Road is a street in the Bel Pre Woods subdivision of Aspen Hill, Maryland

Route

From its southern terminus at Arctic Avenue Flint Rock runs uphill in a nearly westerly direction, curving slightly northwest until reaching the top of a hill at Congress Drive. From this point Flint Rock runs in an unusually straight line for several blocks, passing Vista Drive crossing Dowlais Drive and Drake Drive. Along this segment, homes on the south west side of Flint Rock back up to homes in the Rock Creek Manor subdivision and the athletic fields behind Rock Creek Valley Elementary School (between Dowlais and Drake).

After crossing Drake Drive it proceeds down a steep hill, turning north to roughly follow Sycamore Creek upstream. At the bottom of this hill, Flint Rock turns sharply south east, crossing Castaway Drive at the apex of a horseshoe curve. It then passes Flint Rock Terrace, the northern terminus of Drake Drive, Shippers Lane, and Congress Drive, before reaching its northern terminus at Arctic Avenue approximately one half mile from the southern terminus on Arctic.
