Is my rephrasing of this purpose clause correct?

Suppose I have a sentence:

“Hercules reliquit viam ut Megaram peteret.”

If I want to rephrase the purpose clause using the gerund / gerundive; would it be correct to write the following?

“Hercules viam reliquit ad petendum Megaram.”

Should I even be using the gerund / gerundive here?
