[Tagging] leisure=track on areas?

Dear all,

would somebody be able to post a few areas or relations that they consider
well tagged as leisure=track? I'll add those to the wiki.

It would be good if the wiki had some examples concrete, so people can look
them up, rather than randomly looking at tracks (with possibly conflicting
usage). I recently tried to help an OSM newcomer map sports-related
objects, and the first ones that we came across (via overpass-turbo) didn't
even follow the wiki recommendations. So it would be great to have 2-3
examples, that people who have thought about this consider well tagged.

I've got a messy and half-finished "Guide to mapping King's Cross
Underground" here http://bjohas.de/wiki/Maps/Kings_Cross to illustrate what
kind of information I think is useful. It obviously needs finishing, and
trimming down to be usable, but I'm trying to add a reasonable amount of
detail so that others could follow this to map other stations.

Many thanks!
