Top Sail Hill preserve north route??

I'm nailing down the final route for our FL trip. On the return we are staying at Top Sail Hill Preserve SP (been there many times, love it!!)
Google routes me north on US 331 to Defuniak Springs
now the question--

Google wants me to stay right and follow FL 83 north to the Bama line then
Bama state 153 and 52 to Opp Ala.

I have always stayed left on US 331 North out of Defuniak Springs....
but google says the distance is 4 miles difference but ONE HOUR longer
to take the US 331???

Anyone familiar with the east route out of Defuniak on 83, 153, 52 North??
IF the road is decent I'll definitely go that way and save an hour!

We stayed at a condo in Destin last year for the holidays and came home that way because we wanted to see the Santa Rosa Beach area. We took the 83/153/52 route north. It was fine but seemed to take FOREVER to get to the AL line. I do remember we had a slight detour in some little town somewhere along that route because a bridge was out or something, but that was a year ago.

Oh and edited to say: Since we weren't hauling the 5er, we didn't really look for low bridges or anything, so I can't help you there. The Honda can go under pretty much anything!

Take 331 North out of Defuniak Springs to Florala, AL. Since I don't like 331 North of Defuniak, I take 55 toward Andalusia, AL (the bridge work on 55 someone mentioned, is complete, otherwise you would have to continue on 331), and hit I-65 out of Georgiana. I go this way because the road out of Andalusia all the way to I-65 North is 4 lane and never much traffic. I would not take the Google route 83/153/52.
