Hiking trails in OpenStreetMap almost 3 years ago

This is one of the brilliant things about being a non-native English speaker in computing: to us, English is just another artificial language like C, Json or XML :-) And that’s why I hate it when a computer is configured to speak my own language: I always fear ambiguities.

By the way, in France “voies vertes” are supposedly for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders. That is possibly why it is tagged the way it is, so that multiple boolean tags are allowed.

And oh, how would you tag “longe-côte”? Apparently, it’s a practice recognized by our national hikers’ federation, that consists in walking in the sea on long sandy beaches :-) This gets more confusing every day…
