I can't speak for other states, but in Florida's Ocala National Forest
the trails, at least the ones you can drive on, are marked with
rectangular brown highway shields, so ref seems appropriate. But you
probably shouldn't leave out all prefixes - for example 43 is a
tertiary road, and with simply ref=43 it wouldn't be clear that it's a
forest road: http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=29.41438&lon=-81.68936&zoom=15&layers=M
I'd find out what abbreviation is most common (NFS? NFD? FS? FR?) and
use it as a prefix.
