Stream that doubles as a track

How do I tag a stream that is also a off-road track when the banks are dry? --ika-chan! (talk) 19:43, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Best practice is to create a separate way (line) and add the tag highway=track to that new line, along with the name of the track. If you use the same way for the track and the stream, then the name=* would be ambiguous: is it the name of the stream or the name of the track? --Jeisenbe (talk) 13:59, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

Streams with ponds in the middle

Mention how to map a stream that enters one end of a lake/pond and leaves via the other end. Jidanni (talk) 04:50, 20 March 2023 (UTC)
