Guideposts are often found along official hiking/cycling/riding/skiing routes to indicate the directions to different destinations. Additionally they are often named after a region or place and show the altitude.

The position of a signpost can be used by a hiker/biker/rider/skier as a confirmation of the current position, especially if he uses a printed map without a GPS receiver.

The content of the sign can be tagged using either destination=* on the corresponding way or Relation:destination_sign for a more complete representation.

Tagging

Create a node at the exact position and tag with the following values. Please do not tag a crossroads as a guidepost.

To describe the type(s) of the shown route(s) use the tags hiking=yes, bicycle=yes, mtb=yes, horse=yes or ski=yes. They don't describe the legal access to the guidepost. To make this explicitly clear instead of e.g. hiking=yes you could alternatively use guidepost:hiking=yes or guidepost=hiking, though this is less common, not widely supported and would add no additional meaning.
