I have a tiny bit of experience. I did a bit of it this spring - a very tiny bit. I have two tips. Heading north from St. George, the bike path starts right next to the big road - Bluff Street. I tried to head up a residential street the way it appeared on the map, dead-ended at the golf course, backtracked, and found the bike path. As I recall, you can get on the bike path right where Diagonal Street runs into Bluff Street.
The other problem I had was that the turn off of Snow Canyon Parkway onto the road to Snow Canyon Park was difficult to find. Coming from town there was no sign (I double-checked.) I went about a mile past until my odometer told me I had clearly gone too far, went back, and saw a small sign noting the turn. Snow Canyon was beautiful, by the way.
That's the extent of my knowledge. I was by myself and didn't feel prepared to undertake the whole loop, so I went back to St. George from Snow Canyon and then rode up to Zion Canyon, where I spent three days and nights. Wonderful!
