Similar problems in Australia

Many ephemeral rivers are used for vehicles and some are used as hiking 

For the hiking paths as these are routes I have simply made them into 
members of the route.

Tagging both as highway + waterway will lead to problems.

Using the route relation has worked for the hiking trails that I have 
done so far.

That might work for highways too, make a relation with the normal 
highways and waterways as a route.
