@mtbboy, note that you cannot use Google StreetView to map features. So if you haven't been there, and you cannot determine the feature from allowed aerial imagery, you should not map the stones in the first place. That being said, you could use barrier=block

We are allowed to use Mapillary, but unfortunately, nobody visited that site yet

Is the cairn a burial site? If so I'd say possibly the line of rocks form a stone/rock sculpture. Leading you from one resting place in this life, the picnic area, up to the cairn, a resting place for a future life (the hereafter).

the rocks are at the middle leading to the highest point of the hill.

I actually just used the satellite imagery built in in OSM, but I found this later, to and I think it shows what it is well better than satellite imagery. only reason I linked it there. I did not actually use it to map it. I have actually been in a car that was driven past this thing, but never been up there. but first time I see a thing like that. do anyone know a name for this?

to me it seems like the rocks are just leading you to the top of the hill, it's meant for hiking up there., it seems like the only reason these rocks are there is to guide you to the top.
