In my opinion, for the first one, it does seem plausible, it cuts
through the tree line, and they did tag it as surface=ground so it
might not be easily seen from imagery. Only way to confirm is on the
ground survey or ask the contributor via a changeset comment. The tag
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:informal could be used if it
only evolved through usage.

The second one looks more suspect, you can't even see a faint trail
from the Mapbox imagery, I would say it's too hard to tell without an
on the ground survey to confirm. Or ask the contributor what the path
there really is like.
