While I fully appreciate and will contribute to OSM information as appropriate, there are needs to create routes that need to be private to a certain group of OSM users.

How do I create and share such routes with a limited group of OSM users?

I have tried to search for this topic but with no results of value.

Thank you for your help in advance.

The OSM web site does not provide any such functionality: all routing is actually provided by third-parties who have agreed to accept traffic from the OSM site. Nor is the website likely to have such functionality in the near or distant future. Third party suppliers of routing services based on OSM may provide this type of capability.

OSM generally only accepts data that can be freely distributed under the ODbL license. Private data cannot be stored in OSM. However, using services like umap.openstreetmap.fr you can draw something on top of an OSM map, and share this "something" only with selected people.
