This trail climbs up the north side of Mount Hood within Mount Hood Wilderness. There is a loop opportunity at the top of Vista Ridge trail through when Vista Ridge Trail #626 is combined with Eden Park Loop #600H and Timberline Trail #600. The trail provides one of the shorter access routes to the Timberline Trail #600. Where the trail connects with the Timberline Trail #600, several other popular destinations are easily accessible from this point including Elk Cove, Barrett Spur, Eden Park, Cairn Basin, and Wy'east Basin.


This trail begins at Forest Road 1650 and ends at its junction with Eden Park Trail #600H. The trail begins by following an old road for a few hundred feet before entering the woods. After 0.5 mile, the trail reaches a wilderness entry station and the abandoned Vista Ridge Scenic Trail; continue right. The trail traverses the hillside and dips into a small ravine before climbing the ridge at a moderate grade. Shortly after Mount Hood comes into full view, the junction with the Eden Park Trail #600H is reached. To make a loop that adds 2.6 miles to the hike, head west on Eden Park Trail #600H 1.3 miles to its junction with Timberline Trail #600. Turn left (east) on Timberline Trail #600 and travel 1 mile back to the junction with Eden Park Trail #600H. Turn left on Eden Park Trail #600H and travel 0.3 mile back to the junction with this trail (#626).
