The best trails on the wooded and wetland-y Norton Preserve, in my mind, are the orange trail to the end of yellow. The winding orange trail takes you through a woods, with views over the marsh. The yellow trail (which ends at private property) brings you into the marsh.
Directions: The preserve is at the end of Norton Road, you walk by a big house into the woods. You can’t park at the entrance, but must park by the side of the road, near telephone pole 49 (it is marked with a sign). Parking is limited to six cars.
