Thats right, outside of towns an villages there are normaly unpaved  
trails. And nearly all of them are normal multiuse trails.

But paved trials or paths can be assigned to footway or cycleway. Or a  
trail with very soft (sand or mud) surface to bridleway. It also depends a  
bit on access-signs.
