The perimeter loop trail here at Touisett Marsh will lead you through fields full of insects and butterflies, wooded areas, over streams, through marshes, and along the shores of a cove and the Kickamuit River. Start from the trail to the side of the fire station where the sign is. The trail winds clockwise through the property.  The trail first leads to a kiosk then follows the edges of a couple fields before entering a wooded area then pops out to the marsh area. A small bridge crosses over a stream then the path follows the shoreline through an area of thickets and more fields. The path then turns inland and heads back toward the fire station. You will likely hear rustling in the shrubs and thickets here as this is a haven for birds.
