Do anti-stalking laws impede on our ability to travel the same route that someone else also happens to be traveling?

They can do. If there is a court order that someone can't be within, say, 100 yards of someone. the onus is on the person that the court order is against to stay away from that person.

It sounds like your ex has a restraining order against you and you want to stalk her. You plan to make the excuse that you were "just traveling your regular route." Courts have heard that before and they often require disgruntled exes like you to make inconvenient detours in order to stay away from the protected person.

Depends on whether you are following them and they have taken out a restraining order on you which says you cannot go within a certain distance of them.
If you have a restraining order against you then you cannot knowingly go somewhere the person is.
However if you both coincidently happened to be travelling the same route and you didn't know they were doing the same journey as you I can't see how that is enforceable if you encroach.
If you stop at a service station and approach the person then that is clearly a breach but if you are coincidently both driving along the same road then that is nobodies fault.
If there is no restraining order in place then you are not restricted at all.
It does however worry me why you are asking this question as it suggests you are actually stalking someone which again by asking this you know is wrong.

That depends on whether you're actually trying to stalk them, or just traveling for some separate purpose.

No. If you want to know the terms of some specific statute in some specific state, ask for it.
