I would need a transitive verb which would have "road" or "way" or "path" as the direct object. I want to say that a person walks this road to the end in this context:
This will give them the support and motivation to ______ (meaning follow to the end) the path back to safety.
Does such a verb exist? If a single word is not possible, is there a more idiomatic phrase than follow/go to the end of a road?
Edit 1: I know you can say that you traverse a distance. For example, if you say that you traverse the desert, it means you go from one end to the other end. However, I find it awkward to say traverse a road to mean go all its length.
I need this verb in other contexts as well. It must mean "to go all the length of".
Edit 2: The French have the term "parcourir" which is a transitive verb and means to cover the whole distance of something. But I cannot say "cover a path" in English.
