Has any one done this loop on a road touring bike or does it require a mountain bike?

If you go to the Utah Cliffs page in the Routes & Mapping section, I think you'll find the information you are looking for.

Once you get this page, click on 'More' at the end of the first paragraph. The equipment section is near the end.

I hope this helps,

I have not done that route, but I have spent a lot of time on the back roads of Utah in that area.  The dirt roads out there are pretty smooth and hard packed when weather is nice, but when it does rain it is mud city.  I wouldn't want to do it on my road touring bike.  I also think a full suspension is a bit of overkill if you are in good riding condition and willing to put up with the bumps. Also, having at least a little tread helps when you hit a sand wash.  If you have never been to that part of the country you are really in for a treat.  I can't wait to go back.
