Description:
The purpose of this category is to waymark the start and finish trailheads of long-distance walking trails throughout the world. The intention is build a database of long-distance walking trails and tracks.
Expanded Description:
Waymarks suitable for this category are the clearly defined trailheads of long distance walking trails (tracks) where long distance is defined as a walking trail where an average hiker cannot (or would not want to) complete the trail in a single day's walk, i.e., requiring one or more overnight camps.

The trail should be a walking trail. If the trail is a walking trail but also allows mountain bikes or horses for example, that is acceptable. The trail should be not able to be driven by a vehicle.

Waymarks should be for single trails, not a network of trails, i.e., a trail with the same name the whole way. As a general rule a trail should be a point-to-point or a loop hike, rather than an out and back trail.

Acceptable trailheads are the clearly defined starting and finishing points of the trail (should be signage to this effect) and where appropriate intermediate trailheads (should be signage to this effect) where it is possible to join or exit the trail, for example in a town. You may waymark one trailhead or all trailheads for the one trail.

Tell us as much as you can about the trail such as water availability, access points, details of designated campsites, water sources, information on parking etc. Suggest you use the llist of category variables as a guide to expanding your waymark description.
