 The first climb up the 'road' is totally brutal. Beware that you'll spend 40min walking or riding in granny getting up there. It's nasty and boring.
The trail itself is very good with two feature drops, one off a log ramp and another off a slab.

 I totally feel you. I love climbing but that is way too steep and long. I wish they had a climb with broken back singletrack switchbacks thru the forest and made it more gradual. Other then the climb the trails are just amazing.

 The only section of the Neilson trail I'd ride again. Awesome descent but as others have mentioned the climb to get to the single track is fairly brutal.
