The Fort Nisqually Trail follows along the east side of the 1843 Fort Nisqually site from the junction of the BB- Edmond Marsh Trial just south of Edmond Village Park and follows between it and one of two fenced heirloom orchard sites. These fenced areas are home to fruit trees which parent trees were planted by the Hudsons Bay Company when the fort was moved to the site in 1843 from its first site which was placed in 1833 where The Home Course resides today. You can learn more about Fort Nisqually at the DuPont Historical Museum or at Point Defiance Park at the Fort Nisqually Living History Museum. The trail then continues with an expansive view of Edmond Marsh and through a grove of Oregon White "Garry" Oaks.
