Many 'trailheads' in my area have no additional parking, nor do they 
have a shelter, bench, water, toilets etc. Some have a sign .. some do not.

To me a 'trailhead' is simply a place where I can enter or leave a trail 
that is officially condoned. Other things (like parking areas, toilets 
etc) should be marked with the appropriate tag. Oh .. some of the signs 
direct you to the local railway station .. about 2 miles walk away.
