When we encountered the road while hiking, the omission caused us some navigation confusion. Maybe they got bad data from the govt., but regardless, they need to fact check their products.
Nat. Geo. should be setting the standard for good cartography, not churning out crap. To me that omission makes the whole map unreliable.
