You will find a sign by the Jõesuu-Tõramaa Road that invites you on a 4.8 km hike along the boardwalk in Riisa Fen. The trail passes 8 rest stops and a watchtower. A motorway, a car park and an outhouse are located by the gate to the trail.
The trail starts on the fen and briefly runs through the forest. In places like this, you can see the forest turning into a fen and vice versa – dry ground is replaced by wet land, swamp plants with ancient spruce forests. You can also see some beautiful swamp pools by the trail.

Riisa study trail is accessible for a wheelchair (or a pram); it's total length is 1,220 m. In a wheelchair, it is possible to take the trail until the first swamp pool.
