line on the land

The line made by man upon the land are visible from afar, the routes up the fell sides can be seen down the valley as you drive into it. I could incorporate these lines into the finished piece, overlaying onto the image symbolising the lines which have been overlaid upon the landscape by man. 

When creating dialogue with the farmer they say they don't very often use the paths as the travel far and wide across the land when gathering their sheep, so the people who work the land here don't create marks. Only the tourist does. Do fell walkers/runners, mountaineers / climbers class themselves as a tourist or as they are experiences adrenaline, joy/pleasure from physical fitness created by using the land do they consider themselves except from this title?
