Google knows best!!

"You can't. Maps will always try to route you. It does not matter if there is a bridge you can't go on, a roadway that is actually closed or damaged, or a roadway that is there but it's not maintained. It does not matter if you have driven a particular route 1000 times and ignored Google's directions every time. Maps always knows better than you and will take whatever information it has (except information you provide) and direct you the best way it can.

You can save a portion of the map, but Google sees no reason anyone would ever wish to save a particular route."

I've exported kml routes and converted to gpx using this site.
