I don't know of any way of doing this otherwise, but even if there is, it is probably so buried in the interface that the above method is most-likely still faster.

That's that I tried, but it never seemed to work. Even after giving the path a stroke, it remains hidden because Illustrator still thinks it is now text, not a path. Ultimately, I had a backup copy of the file which contained the original path, so I copied and pasted from that file to recover the path. However that was just a stroke of luck, so to speak.
go into the type with the type tool (or double-click using a select tool) and delete all text. Then select the (invisible) path with the direct or group selection tools and give the path a stroke.
