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.

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.
