Located in the center part of the San Rafael Swell, Reid Neilson is a shallow but fun canyon that is great for those getting into canyoneering but not quite ready to jump into the more advanced routes. This canyon presents good obstacles to overcome but nothing dangerous. Cut into the Cedar Mesa (formerly Coconino) Sandstone, it has a tendency to hold water, although it is mostly easy and manageable. Because of this, it's nice to try this slot in a warmer time of year, to make the water more enjoyable. Reid Neilson is also very desirable for beginners as it is easy and straightforward to access.
