Hi, in the National Park Feldberg (Black Forest, Germany), in winter only certain paths are allowed for use by any means to protect wildlife if there is snow. This is announced via websites, information boards and leaflets, such as this one (in German). Paths through the cross-hatched areas are forbidden. Paths that are not permissible are often (not always) locally marked by corresponding signs. The signs are sometimes specific for a path, sometimes more general for an area. Yet, all routing ignores this and guides (snow shoe-)hikers through the protected areas. The organization could not provide GPS data for the blocked region (hatched in orange in the PDF). Is there a way to tag this in OSM, I couldn’t find a matching discussion in the forum?
