Apply, not translate.

Mappers all over the world have tagged trailheads.
It is up to the mappers to decide if it's useful/worth it to map a
particular location as a trailhead. This holds true for Nederland and
Belgium as well.

If you are at the locations you listed, and you see something there
matching the basic desription, and you find it worth mapping, by all means
feel free. You do not have to run that by me.

The locations now mapped in Nederland match the basic description. They are
visible features marked in the field, clearly designed/designated to start
one ore more trails, they are visibly operated and named, and they are
displayed and used on many searches, maps, apps, routing sites and route
planning sites, I think they are worth mapping.
