trail_visibilty=no meaning there is no evidence of a path on the ground,
except there is some connection implied there eg. a walking route passes
through it.


But I like the sound of virtual=yes as it's less limited to hiking paths.

> informal=yes is for existent paths (indication of usage) that are not
planned or built but have come into existence through usage.
