To express that I will use my own transportation means and route to get there rather than going with a group following the proposed route, can I say, ‘I will go (or get) there in my own way’? Does it sound totally unnatural to native English speakers?

"I will make my own way there" would be the idiomatic expression.
The only reference I can find is https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/make+my+own+way, which gives the phrase a more metaphorical meaning ('make one's own way in life'), but it is also commonly said by someone intending to travel independently to an agreed meeting point.
It's a bit awkward and uncommon, but it is a clear phrase in the right context. For example if someone with received English offered you a map or insisted to show you the way somewhere, they would understand perfectly if you replied that you would go in your own way. More often we say "i'll make my own way there".
