(not John, so somewhat different opinions)

I think we need main/not in addition to what John suggests above.  The
point of main is to be able to know which of the side trails -- even if
they look the same -- are ones that shouldn't be taken by accident.
This is less of a big deal with a mountain trail that probably is well
blazed than a loop trail in town conservation land that has too many
extra trails.
