There is no right choice, each path holds its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
There is a wrong choice, thats what we chose, the swamp.
The swamp is the worst choice (for our group) as we are mostly a heavy armour group navigating through terrain that punishes the wearers of such equipment (one miss-step and a character drowns?) where the road maintainance will be minimal so our pace of travel will be slowed.
At least we will have plenty of adventure, as all the undead come out to fight us.
