Yo,
Never been up to WP for trail riding and their website sux at giving insightful information about the types of trails around the resort. Any opinions about the network of Cross Country trails would be helpful to me. Also, any reccomendations on camping in the area would be gr8 as well. Thanx for replying in advance.

We have been going for the last 4 years in August. We always use the chairlifts for a couple of days, and then we hit the network of trails that is west of Fraser. There are also plenty of trails west of Winter Park but I have only ridden Little Vasquez which comes down from the ski resort into the town. At the resort we like the intermediate trails such as Long Trail, Gunbarrell, Cheyenne, Arapahoe, and also the advanced trails The Downhill, and Mountain Goat. Take Mountain Goat at the end of the day and you can ride all the way to Little Vasquez and end up in town it makes for a really long ride and is mostly downhill. Stay at the Idlewild campground between the resort and town and you won't even need your car, the bike path runs from the resort all the way to Fraser and runs through the campground.
At Fraser you can access most of the trails from the St Louis Creek campground or Byers Creek. I have only ridden Creekside, Flume, Chainsaw and Flume all are good.
Go to Totally Wired Cyclery in Fraser or Christy Sports in Winter Park for maps and info.
There is a good place to take a shower in Fraser called the Rocky Mountain Inn, I think it is $3 for a hot shower here is a link.
