Adding short-cuts on hiking tracks?

I often see official hiking tracks going in zig-zag uphill and some of them have short-cuts going straight uphill. These short-cuts are visible, but it is probably expected that most people follow the official street.

Is it a bad practice to add the short-cuts tracks on OSM?
