How would I tag this?

Regarding this img from Josm:

OSM Question by benkatz100, on Flickr

This is "Sderot Ha Nasi" and "Yaffe Nof" in Haifa (The start of the Panorama Walkway in Merkaz Ha Carmel).
There is a walkway between two hotels which connects the two streets (Shown here as a pink line from a GPX recording).

I'm not sure how to define this path...
Tips?

Thanks!

Along the same line.
How would you tag a singlepath and a doublepath ("דרך לבנה") within a MTB route?
Thanks

Re: How would I tag this?

And before you ask...

These are the rough guidelines. There could be roads that doesn't conform to these guidelines.


motorway:
highway, blue signs.
e.g. Road 20 (Ayalon), Road 5 between Glilot and Kesem, road 1 between Tel Aviv and Shaar HaGai, etc.

trunk:
Main roads, green signs.
e.g. Road 1 between Shaar HaGai and Jerusalem, Road 4 north of Holon
Usually 1-digit ref numbers.

primary:
Main roads, usually 2-digits ref numbers.

secondary:
usually 3-digits ref numbers.

tertiary:
usually 4-digits ref numbers.
Also: main roads in residential areas, and roads leading to villages.

unclassified:
Smaller paved roads in non-residential places.
e.g. agricultural roads, forest roads, roads from behind one village to behind another village, etc.

residential:
Roads in residential places (city, town, village, etc.)

service:
Roads in parking lots, fuel stations, inside universities, inside factories, etc.

track:
unpaved Double.

path:
unpaved Single.

footway:
where people walk between roads in residential areas (like "path" outside of residential areas)

pedestrian:
where people walk and there are many shops. Like "Midrahov", or "Passage", etc.

living_street:
"Rehov Holandi"

road:
Temporary tagging, if the type is unknown. try to add a "note" tag.

Thanks Talkat.
Is this Israel-specific guidelines or global?

It doesn't collide with the global standard, just adapted to Israeli specific roads.
Similar to the way we adapted the place tagging.
