Even local hiking routes can have variations in starting and stopping 
places as well as route variations to accommodate things.

I take the view that the 'normal' route is what I map. The different 
start/stopping options lie along the route and can be accessed by those 
using the route. Just like a bus route or a train route.

The route variations I'm not certain of.

In any case .. I try to help the end users .. such as waymarkedtrails .. 
most usefull to have the route correctly displayed there.
