Thanks for everyone's comments.

Based upon the information you have provided I believe these trails
best fit "highway=path" as long as the appropriate access tags are
added. I will also use "informal=yes" when appropriate as well as
indicate surface type and smoothness.

For those few cases where the trails are paved, and/or wheelchair
accessible by design, I will use "footway."
