I'd agree with that.

Currently the wiki page is describing something that doesn't really 
correspond to the word "trailhead" in English.  There are plenty of 
other examples of that sort of thing in OSM ("city" is an obvious one); 
but I'd suggest trying to avoid creating more to avoid future confusion.

To be clear - as I've said before, and based on my experience of them, 
I'm sure that the sites in NL that are driving this are _really 
important_ and _really worth mapping_ but I don't think that they are 
trailheads, in a similar way to Chesterfield's TPT notice board outside 
the station isn't (as also mentioned previously).

Best Regards,
