Concrete sidewalks are the common way to pave walking paths, and there is nothing exotic about this detail. The main point is that a detail like this can cover all the requirements for the walkways rather than having a specification for that purpose. See the Comments below.
The key features of the paving are the concrete itself, reinforced or plain, base or no base, style and spacing of joints, finishing and curing. The concrete should be air-entrained to resist freeze damage. Reinforcing does little more than keep the adjacent panels in alignment over time, but that does eliminate trip hazards. Finishing can be as simple as burlap dragged longitudinally with sawn contraction joints. Or you can develop patterns with jointing, staining and texturing.
This detail is suggested to specify the construction of sidewalks.
The concrete can be specified here or in specs, spec notes, or a table. Remember air-entrainment for exterior concrete subject to freeze-thaw.
Also specify curing and finishing by adding that information here or elsewhere.
This detail should be placed on the site plan or site details sheets. These are normally the A100 or AS100 series of sheets per the National CAD Standards.
