Wooster Mountain State Park offers part of its site to skeet shooters; the remainder of the undeveloped area is open for wilderness walks. Named for General David Wooster, 444 acres along the Connecticut River offer peaceful and fun exploring. Wooster served in both the Revolutionary War and the French and Indian War. He died during a the Battle of Ridgefield against British General William Tryon. He is buried in the nearby Wooster cemetery and a monument was erected in his honor yards away from the Tackora Trail.
