In other words, you are saving that the ground shows many paths, made by both humans and cows.  If the only place where the ground was trodden down enough to be bare or sparse were along the footpath, you would have the situation that M∡rtin described.

Your eyesight must be better than mine - often where I walk paths are 
marked by a footpath sign or just a stone squeezer stile at either side 
of a field.  Any marks left by walkers would get obliterated by cows 
going back and forth twice a day.
