Also Re: Black bear mountain. The hike from Uncas is a much better one for the very young or the very old. The trail from 28 is easy at first but is a steep scramble for the last few hundred vertical feet. And yeah it can be sketchy in the winter when it’s solid ice (bring crampons). But because there’s no parking area or signage and a lot less traffic on the Uncas that trail gets a lot less use. But we’ve taken very young kids that way and they surely would have had trouble from 28. The summit views aren’t amazing but the summit is vast and has a lot of spots to explore (and pick blueberries). Again a good choice for young kids. Just beware the views shown in the pics above are cliffs. They are on the left once you get near the summit from the Uncas trail.
