Well maintained track with LOADS of stairs! We hopped over the fence at the end to see the base of the falls. A good cardio workout and super pretty.

Challenging with a 360’ reward

There are 300+ tall steps, 600 round trip. The trail is a tourist attraction and used extremely heavily. Although it is a nice falls, the base of the falls, the "Punch Bowel, cannot be seen from the boardwalk trail-end without climbing where over the safety rails, climbing past warning signs, then scrambling up a roughly worn path.

Well maintained stairs and trail to pretty lookout platform. Nice trail.

Fair to easy with enjoyable views and fun times. Did trail in reverse after accessing from Deception River side. Goat Pass Hut was a great night stay.

This is a great overnight hiking trip up the beautiful and lush Mingha valley to Goat Pass hut. Return trip is easier being downhill.
