bicycle trail markings

Hi. In my city there are four bicycle routes that run through the city, the forest and surrounding villages. They are marked with such simple signs. Each trail is properly described on the city's website, which allows for its verification. Is it worth nominating such trail markers? I'm not talking about mass nomination of plaques, but at least one in each part of the city.

Unfortunately, for me, the trail markings are one big unknown. Quite often I see similar or the same ones in the rankings, so I just avoid them. Such markings are durable and if damaged, the city replaces them quite quickly. Especially in rural areas where two trails run. This would be a good opportunity to create POIs in rural areas where there are no pokestop

    No I honestly think they would be rejected because they are “a generic sign”. But it’s worth a try I guess. Could I see a photo of your one of the sign posts?

    If they are official signs for trails that were designed to promote exercise and/or exploration, that they great wayspots. It doesn't matter that they are "generic signs", as it is not the sign your are nominating. You are nominating a section of the trail. Sadly the concept of an object that placemarks an area is to difficult for many reviewers, so if your local reviewers have a poor understanding of the criteria, they might reject it.

    Be sure to provide enough evidence that it is a genuine trail, and that the marker exists at that location, or at least the trail passes by that location. And make sure that it is clear you are nominating the section of the trail, and not the marker. Give it a title that has the name of the trail, and something that uniquely identifies the section of the trail (a street name, a nearby POI, ...). Add some info about both the trail and the section of the trail in the description (start and end point, length, ...). Add links to websites and trail maps about the trail in your supporting information.
