Status: de facto

Exposed rock is typically appearing on mountainous trails[1][2].

For surface of small crushed rock fragments surface=gravel will be more fitting.

Areas of exposed bedrock are tagged with natural=bare_rock.

Processed natural stone can be used to create surface=unhewn_cobblestone, surface=sett and surface=paving_stones surfaces.

Note that surface=rock is applicable both in some cases of man-made surfaces of trails and in cases where trail goes across exposed bare rock.
