Personally I'd be inclined to ignore the legal thou-shalt-sign-in 
aspects here and simply tag the register because it's a good landmark. 
Probably just "man_made=trail_register", keep it simple and unambiguous.

(I have found memories of Huntersfield Mountain! Stayed in the lean-to, 
made a stew, met a fat porcupine up there. Haven't been back since the 
Long Path was rerouted...)
