(ignoring foot/bicycle as that's not the point)

If it's private, then access=yes is arguably not right, as permission is
granted to the public, vs the public having a right of access.

So I would use

access=permissive

instead of yes.  But this is a far larger issue than this one place; it
arguably applies to all paths on private land (that aren't a public
right-of-way of course) where it's basically ok for the public to go.

See 'yes' and 'permissive':

However, it seems the definition of permissive has drifted from what I
remember.  It used to be "no real permission is granted, but the owner
has declined to object".  Now, it seems to have a notion that permission
has actually been granted somehow.

I'm curious about this, and particularly from the English perspective,
where I've seen signed "permissive paths".  As opposed to the US, where
there are unmarked paths in the woods on private property, and for some
of those, locals know that it's basically ok to walk on them.
