When creating your route on strava, I find it much easier to do it on the computer (in a browser) rather than on your smartphone. Additionally, when creating your route, you can select "Use Manual Mode" which will allow you to click point on the map, regardless of whether or not they're on the road. The tool will then draw a straight line between points. I typically turn this tool on when going on paths that don't show up on Strava, and then turn it off when on paths that Strava doesn't struggle to select.
