    Hi there

    On the Dots, you can click and hold, then drag the route you want to take /Mark.


    From Google Maps / help
    To choose an alternate route, either click on a greyed-out route on the map or click on one of the other routes listed on the left-hand side menu. Note that you can also change routes by clicking on one and dragging it so that the directions will take you via certain roads.
    Just tried it and it worked fine.

    I use the "Measure Distance' tool for something similar. Each click adds a dot, and at the same time gives you an idea of how far you'll travel.
