It helps newbies. Newbies have to start somewhere, and adding a
might be the first thing somebody tries and doesn't read any other
At least consider a sentence under the heading "Useful" explaining that
are optional. Not strictly needed, but I'm remembering my early days with
trying to make sense of it without getting lost in a twisty maze of wiki

One distinction I saw (I have no idea where) is that it influences the type
of footwear needed.
Walking shoes (at a pinch, even ordinary shoes) are adequate for a walking
trail but a
hiking trail needs walking boots because you will encounter sharp rocks
undergrowth and/or muddy terrain and/or have to wade through shallow
Yes, that definition seems to be putting the cart before the horse, but
follow it backwards.
If the map says it's a walking route you can get away with walking shoes or
ordinary shoes; if the map says it's a hiking route then you need hiking
boots. And that
is the reason for the map making a distinction in the first place, so you
know what type
of equipment you need.
