I was thinking of putting in a new route (not trail) somewhere and putting in flags only at key points where you MUST make the right route decision.
For trails with a clear footbed, I don't think any flags are necessary. The usual winter route markers are enough.
For less-travelled routes I like to see the next flag/marker at all times. More than that is overdoing it.
