Here is a route that is;
a horse riders route
a mtb route
a walking route ... It is displayed correctly here
https://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#route?id=176684 as a hiking route

https://riding.waymarkedtrails.org/#route?id=176684 as a horse riders route.

But misses out on the mtb!

Presently tagged

While the semi colon is discouraged ... these cases appear to be exceptions.
