You’re best off tagging the road (highway=track probably, maybe highway=unclassified) and indicating that it’s part of the Trans Canada Trail with a relation.

In this case, the road is a Forest Service Road - often meaning low quality road, infrequent maintenance, lots of potholes and creeks running over the road. 4x4 recommended but in this particular case not required. I have both hiked and driven this section of road. The Trans Canada Trail IS the road.
I was thinking it might be best to put a parallel set of lines for the Trans Canada Trail due to the fact that the road is not always open to vehicles. But as I'm new to using OSM, I figured I'd ask first.
