The trailhead proposal is long overdue. They are common around areas I've
lived in the US. They usually have limited parking, signage, sometimes a
place to pay, and some even have permanent or portable restrooms. Thanks
for creating the proposal.

A couple of comments on the proposal:

A node for the location of a trailhead make sense. But help me understand
when a trailhead way or relation would apply. I would suggest explaining it
on the wiki.

I would also characterize a tailhead as an access point to a trail instead
of the beginning of a trail.
