The definition you quoted said: "way or path". In the aerial images
posted here there was neither of them. If was just grass. No way.

You can actually see informal footways/paths quite well in aerial
imagery. If they are there and you have good resolution images.
Usually the grass is aside then, because grass doesn't grow where
people (or animals) walk. It disappears even if it was there before.
