Thank you for your time and quick response. I’m still having problems. Here is a specific example: Starting at Wildacres (35.82650N, 82.10712W), traveling to Pisgah Inn (35.41449N, 8274985W), then to the southern terminus of BRP (35.50506N, 83.0080W.
Are you sure about this Longitude? I would make it 83.3008W. Perhaps you left out the second "3".
The routing computed by S&T, directs off the BRP and onto regular highways. Using Route/Route Options/Segments/Preferred roads: maximum Dislike Interstate/Limited Access, Arterial Roads, and Toll Roads; and neutral on Other Highways; the first segment is successful. The second segment takes me off the BRP onto US278. If I try to drag the route back to the BRP, It puts me on a circular routes. Changing the setting of Other Highways does not improve the situation. I do better with a Rand McNally paper map. Again, any help is appreciated,
Again, if I do not rely on S&T to do the routing and select a couple of points along the BRP, the route S&T projects is strictly BRP. See attached. Also note on the map, a pushpin for your end-point as written in your post which seems to be unconnected to the BRP.
In summary, if you want to create a route that you already have in mind, it might be better to pick distinct points on that route rather than letting S&T finding the quickest and dragging the route around to suit your needs.
