Neil Peterson


Neil’s love for adventure began young, fueled by a simple question: “I wonder where that trail goes?” This curiosity propelled him from exploring his backyard to traversing the majestic landscapes of Utah by 4×4, ATV, and dirt bike.

However, a hike through Little Wild Horse Canyon sparked a new passion for slot canyons, drawing him deeper into the heart of Utah’s wilderness. His favorite hikes include the Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park’s Fiery Furnace and Queens Garden Trail in Bryce Canyon.

Neil’s passion for exploration extends beyond personal adventure. He has served as a member of the Utah Off-Road Recovery Team, offering a helping hand to stranded explorers in the backcountry. He also serves on the executive board of Utah Off-Road & Outdoor Enterprises, promoting responsible trail use and advocating for the stewardship of Utah’s public lands.

Beyond adventure, Neil’s creative spirit shines through his photography and videography. However, his lens isn’t limited to the scenery. He thrives on capturing the connection between people and the natural world – the joy of families exploring together and the camaraderie among fellow adventurers. Most importantly, Neil is a devoted husband and father of three girls. They are his frequent companions on these adventures, creating lasting memories amidst the wonders of nature. Neil cherishes these experiences, fostering a love for the outdoors and a passion for adventure in his daughters.
