Maybe this is a good value for entrance? Or is entrance only for buildings and related structures? 


Also, as I understand it, a trailhead can be the name of an area at the beginning for a route (with parking and other amenities) - or do we cant to make a new area as well - hiking station?

Many routes have "stations" (like Mount Fuji) which are known points, such as the area around a node that should be labeled as a trailhead.

I guess what I'm asking is, is the trailhead node related to the beginning of the trail and the area that surrounds some trailheads (formal or informal parking, road turnouts, information signs, amenities provided by a park only connected to a trailhead, it can that idea of "amenities provided at an important part of a trail" be expanded to include named spots (crossings, stations) elsewhere on the trail?

Right now I'm using locality for stations. 

Maybe putting them into some kind of format that goes with paths and trailheads is a good idea.
