Based on the information you've provided, I can't say that one route is better than the other. I would favor the shortest, most direct path.

Because you have a ground rod at the antenna location, you are correct to bond it to the existing electrical service grounding system... 6 AWG is the minimum diameter wire to be used in this case according to the National Electrical Code. If there was no grounding rod at the antenna location, a 10 AWG conductor would be acceptable per the NEC Article 810.
