the only established tags for areas I am aware of are natural=scrub and
natural=wetland with sub tags (swamp, etc.), maybe this can be further
refined if required (density), or we can come up with new tags for stuff
like quicksand. Suitable keys might be "natural" (for geographic features),
landcover, landuse and maybe more. First of all you should tell us what it
is that makes the area difficult for foot travel. ;-)
