From St. George heading clockwise, the Utah Cliffs Loop Bicycle Route goes north to Snow Canyon State Park and then heads for historic Pine Valley, nestled in a bucolic basin in the Pine Valley Mountains. From Cedar City you will climb through the Hurricane Cliffs escarpment, high onto the Markagunt Plateau of the Dixie National Forest. At Navajo Lake, still at high elevation, you begin an unforgettable downhill run that starts out alongside the North Fork of the Virgin River - really just a creek at first - and ultimately meet SR 9 just east of Zion National Park. From Rockville, a series of backroads lead to Hurricane and finally back to St. George. Elevations on the route range from 2,500' to 10,000' above sea level. Road surfaces on the Utah Cliffs Route are approximately fifty percent dirt and gravel roads and fifty percent paved roads.
