I have heard of urban beekeepers facing the hive entrance towards the wall of their garage or house for the purpose of forcing the flight path up and over people's heads.

6 inches to 1 foot should be adequate. If the distance is too small (an inch or two) the bees will climb down to the hive entrance, rather than flying down to it.
