It's absurd to believe that the rover would make this particular route.
Missing Tracks in the Lunar Dust
Additionally, it should also be notice that in some of the Apollo images the rover left no tire tracks in the moon dust. Zoom into these photos and notice that there are no tracks to either side of the wheels, despite footprints of the astronauts being clear and visible in the soil. This might be because in some scenes the rover was lowered down by a crane.

Q: But couldn't the tracks have been covered up by astronauts kicking dust around?
Zoom in close and decide for yourself whether the rear wheel is even touching the ground. The rear of the rover appears to be suspended in mid air, despite the vehicle not being in motion or occupied by a driver. This may support the idea that some scenes were created by lowering the rover down with a crane.
In the background of AS-17-140-21370 the Lunar Rover is still packaged, yet in the foreground tracks are visible in the lunar dust. How could the Rover make tracks in the lunar dust when it was still unpacked?
Compare that to how the Rover package looks post-deployment:
