I tried for a shortcut.

Trace is a short story by American author Jerome Bixby. - AsNotedIn

My wrong left turn north of Pittsfield led me into a welter of backroads from which I could find no exit. Willy-nilly I was forced, with every mile I drove, higher and higher into the tree-clad hills ... even an attempt to retrace my route found me climbing. No farmhouses, no gas stations, no sign of human habitation at all ... just green trees, shrubbery, drifting clouds, and that damned road going up. And by now it was so narrow I couldn't even turn around!
Jerome Bixby, Trace
