[Tagging] Trailhead tagging

What Kevin said was not my aim, I have said that before. I agreed with the general description Kenny came up with. Those places can be (and have been) tagged highway=trailhead, whether these are also TOPs or not, that is the idea.

You can disagree whether particular places now marked as trailheads match this description, but the issue here is: tagging the places that do match it. If there is consensus, then we (mappers) can evaluate  individual nodes.

I agree some of the TOPs will probably not qualify, but most of them will. Not because they are TOPs, but because they are places visibly designed to start hiking or riding on one or more routes.

Let’s talk additional and localised tagging after this basic step. Did I hear you menton “consensus”?

> That's a good summary I can second. Peter, there are probably a lot of TOPs that are trailheads or where a trailhead is part of them. But there are other TOPs that are not trailheads in the spirit of the original proposal (to my understanding) nor the consensus that has been come up in this discussion. I pointed out a couple of the latter earlier (I did not search for those explicitly they were the first ones that I randomly selected from an overpass turbo query).
> I also still stand by my earlier suggestion: Mark the trailheads as such (preferably as a point on a path/track/etc.) with hw=trailhead. Mark the TOPs with a separate node or in some cases better even area and a new key/value pair designating it as such. Several suggestions have been made in this thread (tourism=, leisure=, designation=, ...). If you must, use the same node for hw=trailhead and whatever=TOPorWhatNot but I would advise against that.
