[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - trailhead

But I'd be willing to bet that most trails are not part of a network of
other trails or a route but are stand-alone. The trails I once hiked in the
Adirondack Mountains in New York State all have names and trailheads but,
with a couple of exceptions, are not part of any route. I think the mixed
approach is best. If a given trail is part of  a larger system of trails,
or the area where it begins has related amenities, then the relation idea
makes sense. Otherwise, keeping it simple with a named trailhead node where
the transition from highway to footway takes place will suffice.
