I've been out in the Forest of Bere grabbing GPS traces of the paths
running through the forest but I'm not 100% sure of the best way to tag
them on OSM. The paths themselves run can vary between maintained paths
which are wide enough to drive a vehicle down (but are not permitted) to
simple unmaintained tracks between the trees. A list of access
permissions can be found on this website and there is also an
official ROW (a footpath) on some of the paths.
I've tagged them as permissive bridleways and used foot=yes to denote
the paths that the footpath uses but I'm left with a couple of
* Horse riding is for permit holders only but my current tagging
scheme does not make this clear.
* Should the official ROW be tagged as highway=footway,
horse=permissive or highway=bridleway, foot=yes? Is there any
difference between the two?
If you were tagging this what would you do?
