My wife & I just completed the Utah Cliffs Loop September 25-29, 2016. There is construction on FR053 around Navajo Lake between Duck Creek Village & the turn to N Fork County Rd. They let us ride through with a warning to keep an eye out for heavy machinery. Lots of 18-wheelers flying by too.

In addition N Fork County Rd was being graded, so not too much fun to ride down.

Not sure if my Google-fu has weakened, but I've found it surprisingly hard to get good info on the Utah Cliffs Loop, apart from a few (old-ish) trip reports. I'm thinking of taking my wife, who's an experienced road endurance cyclist, as an introduction to off-road touring / bikepacking.

We're targeting a mid June start date, riding 3-4 days with a stop in Zion. I know there's quite a lot of asphalt on the route, which I don't mind. My question is how technical are the dirt sections? Is traffic as bad as some say, or is it just limited to small sections? Should we not bother & just go do the Idaho Hot Springs Route?  ;)
