This short path doesn't have an official name, but I'll call it the Entrance Trail since it serves as the public entry way to the main house. It starts as a paved path at the parking area and passes the small visitor center/contact station. It then crosses a bridge over the dam for Front Lake where the stream makes a little waterfall going over the dam. It then goes up the hill to the house, between the driveway and pasture in rows of pine trees. It's the main way to get to the house, and most people should be able to make it up this very short path - even the kids. Continue past the house to get to some of the longer trails on the property.
