Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Newbie to OSM editing using iD in OSM.

I am trying to add a cross-country ski trail. Over it's length the trail travels over a dirt path, but at one point it hits a road, but does not use the full length. I am seeing that I should not superimpose the ski trail over the road, but I need to split the way.

The ski trail and the road travel together and end at another road.

How do I know what items I need to select and assign tags correctly too?

Thanks in advance, Kevin

By the sound of it, you would split the road where the ski trail joins and leaves it. Then the portion of the road that is used as a ski trail, I assume closed to motor vehicle travel in winter, would get the ski trail tagging in addition to its normal highway tagging.

Thanks! Looks like I needed to select the Node where the road and trail come together and do a Shift-Click to also select the road. Still confused how I only select the Way from the Node to the Deadend point. At least I seem to have taken the next step.
