For me on all bikes only got hotspots with bad / worn out shoes since you state no singletrack, I am assuming superstiff shoes will be fine and you don't need to worry about hike a bike, just look for carbon soled shoes and dont worry too much about the pedals.

I've got good shoes, but I've never ridden this far in one shot. Trying to minimize damage to my feet. I've heard some cleats are worse than others.

I agree...stiff carbon soles and proper insoles are more important than the pedals...especially on just gravel roads. Pretty much any brand of mountain cleat is going to be a similar size and contact patch with the shoe (shimano, time, crank brothers, etc).

You say you have good shoes. Question: are you sure or were they just expensive so you think they're good? Great shoes have carbon soles. No exceptions. Pedals have zero to do with hotspots.
