A shortcut through grass that you can see, sure! e.g.
But if you can't see it - sorry - you're not going to convince me that
there is a path.
If you can see some grass, sure, map that. But just being able to walk
on the grass does not turn the grass into a path. Otherwise, in any
area of grass there would actually be *infinite* overlapping,
criss-crossing "invisible-paths". :P
