Opened only a few seasons ago, Pura Vida is probably the flowiest trail on Westside being continuous singletrack with no major features (drops, rockfaces etc) to be aware of. It has seen its fair share of traffic since the Four Kings and Enduro World Series raced through over the last couple seasons so is not as soft and loamy as it once was, but always an enjoyable ride.

Access Info

Accessed via the flank trail. If climbing from Function, it will be the first major trail entrance on your right once you've climbed beyond Industrial Disease. From the other direction, continue past Cheap Thrills and High Society, beyond a rock lookout toward Tantalus, over a wooden bridge, then start to descent a little. Entrance should be obvious on your left.

Running great right now, probably best time of the year to ride it. First steep chute is a little blown out but still plenty of grip.
