Similar to this thread, my concern is that there's absolutely no sign of
a hiking trail on a standard map and that the time devoted to map them
seems to be wasted.
The only thing I could find is indeed a guidepost like this experiment
<http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=50.53271&mlon=5.63878#map=18/50.53271/5.63878&layers=N>,
but often the guidepost is virtual.

My usual rambling about using URLs to make it information and not a
search suggestion.
And hope that hovering the mouse will soon display the tag information
some way.
