What makes you think that?

This is a genuine question, by the way - I suspect at the root of this 
might be a difference in the meaning between the English phrases "foot 
route", "walking route" and "hiking route", and their nearest 
equivalents in other languages.  English can be a bit vague; in many 
ways it's a shame that the "base language" of OSM isn't a bit more 
German (with some Dutch words for canals and water management thrown in).
