500-800 mile gravel tour in Utah - Suggestions?

Dates: late March into April

I'd love to hear route suggestions, or certain areas to hit. I'll be on a pinion mountain bike or gravel bike. Pavement and gravel are good. (Possibly rugged mountain biking, depending on if I switch forks.) Priority:  scenery & testing out my new bike! I also love to lock up my bike to hike or even backpack. I'll be doing photography along the way. 

I'd rather stay away from dangerous traffic. 

I used to ride all terrain on a rigid, but do to injuries (bc someone ran a light at 45mph), I need suspension now to mountain bike. So, I could do gravel terrain or swap forks and get on more rugged stuff.

Curious what anyone has to suggest!

Oh the Places We Go

For more off the beaten path gravel/dirt type riding, I personally would try the Skyline Drive; Cathedral Rd. & Hankville Rd. northwest of Hankville, the Devil's Backbone loop west of Boulder and Escalante; or Burr Trail Road heading east from Boulder.  For paved, you can't beat Bryce and Zion.

Have a wonderful tour!
