 From my European view I would exclude the wilderness bit. A lot of 
marked trails here path trough built-up area. There are even specific 
trails mostly through very urban area. I would say a trail is anything 
that would qualify for a route=hiking/bicycle/mtb/horse (possibly ski, 
snowmobile, inline_skates,... , I've never dealt with the latter ones).

I would also encourage including the trailhead in the respective route 
relation(s) with role=trailhead.
