This page has been labelled for deletion.
This normally means the page title is a bad one, and the content has been moved somewhere better. If a page title is vaguely meaningful, the page should perhaps be a redirect, or hold a small summary for historical interest instead. If you disagree with its deletion, please explain why on its talk page.The page should now be empty apart from this message (as per procedure). The page history shows what used to be on this page, and allows people to rescue an old revision. We may decide to do this, but otherwise a wiki 'sysop' user can delete this page more permanently at some point. In the meantime we should fix any pages linking to here.

Trails are ways mainly used by people on foot, bicycle or horse. See Roads for details of ways used primarily by motorised vehicles.
Main article: Cycle routes Paths intended primarily for bicycle use should be tagged as highway=cycleway. This implies that only bicycle traffic is allowed. Use access=* to modify the restrictions if necessary. If a cycle path is allocated a portion of a road (separated by a painted line only), then it should be tagged with cycleway=lane. If it follows, but is otherwise segregated from the road, it should be cycleway=track. If bicycles may go opposite to traffic on a one-way street, it should be cycleway=opposite
Footpaths (long distance footpaths, hiking trails)
Main article: Walking Routes Paths intended primarily for foot traffic should be tagged as highway=footway. This implies that only foot traffic is allowed. Use access=* to modify the restrictions if necessary.
In the UK, official rights of way should also be tagged with foot=yes. Unofficial footpaths (so called "permissive paths") should be tagged instead with foot=permissive. If there is no evidence on the ground of it being a right of way, use foot=permissive. There is no real need to use either for urban paths, as this distinction is only important in the countryside.
Horse paths (bridleways)
In the UK, public bridleways should be tagged with foot=yes, horse=yes, bicycle=yes to indicate that all of these modes of transport have official access rights. If any or all of foot, horse and bicycle have permissive access only, use permissive instead of yes. This is important so that countryside-orientated renderers can distinguish between official and permissive paths, and can distinguish between bridleways which are open or closed to cyclists.
For example, a public footpath with permissive horse rights would be foot=yes, horse=permissive in addition to highway=bridleway. Or, a permissive bridleway with foot and horse rights, but no bike rights would be foot=permissive, horse=permissive in addition to highway=bridleway.
