Yes. There was no path: just an open field - well an enclosed area of
hillside with walls and fencing to retain livestock. I entered it
expecting to be able to cross and exit somewhere on the far boundary,
but found myself trapped inside. It took a little while to find my way
back to the gate. So no sensible path at all. Unless one invented a
tiny path just crossing the boundary. It seems entirely legitimate:
very similar to "entrance" on a building.

After that I also recorded the location of gates through walls and
fences in the area, although I think in most of those cases there were
footways that I also mapped. But not always.
