That might have worked, except there's no folder by that name

Yes there is.
Make sure when you "copy" the path you are including the ~ (Tilde) character just before the first forward slash.

Try selecting the entire line (triple-click it to select) then control-click and select Services > Reveal from the contextual menu.
I don't think that is going to solve your problem though. Safari's integrated URL / search field won't be easily circumvented.
Here are three workarounds for you to consider, using yahoo as an example:
- Type yahoo/ and press Return. The trailing / (slash character) will take you directly to the site.
- Type yahoo in the field, then select Go to Site "yahoo" in the dropdown menu that appears immediately upon typing the second o.
- Use Firefox (the older version I occasionally use still has separate URL and search fields, not sure about newer versions).
I don't consider it advantageous either, but many people were clamoring for a "unified search bar" and Apple capitulated.MacBooks iMacs iPads AirPorts, OS X Mountain Lion, 28 years Apple!
