       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.

       The climb really isn’t that bad. It’s a long double track fire road, just sit in and work a little and you will definitely be rewarded with some fantastic single track

       What an epic trail combined with the north and the south. The climb up the road was brutal but worth it, our group walked pretty much the entire road. Once at the top, the ride down was flowy with some small jumps and drops, perfect for intermediate and better. Just under 4 hours start to finish, could be done in under 3 and up to 5 hours depending on how much you enjoy the scenery and want to stop to check things out. 10/10 would go back just to ride these trails again.
