I counted every stair in the open portion.  923 each way! 366 up and 557 down on the way in.  If anyone really cares I logged everything.  "EE" is emergency exit.  "FEE" is fake emergency exit, small crosspath that looks like the real ones.

Start

20D, 54D, (Bench), 10U, 20D, 7U, 1D, 2U, 19D

Dry creek (:05)

42U, 4D, 1U, 9D

2nd creek

13U, 10D, 34U (steep), 2D, 19D, (rim), 22D

.5 mile marker (:11)

Slope down, 46D, deep ditch crossing, 52U (steep)

50 U

Cairns (:15)

7U, (FEE), 1D, 13U

Bench overlook

98D (partway down EE), 5D, 1U, 33D, 4U, 19D, 4U, 15D, 4U, 2D, 4U, walk rim

35D (nice view)(FEE), 92D

Arrive at creek/1 mile (:24)

2D, cross creek

6D, cross creek again

3U, 6U, 7D, 2U, 1D, muddy areas, 5U, 1D, (bench), 3U, 3D, 1U, 1D, 6U, 9D

Cross creek again (:32),  (bench)

arrive at staircase (:33), 1.5 miles on staircase

87U, 1D, (EE), 5U

Reach end (:36)

leave Creek (:50)

Cairns (:62)

1/2 mile (:67)

first V (:72), 2nd V (:73)

Finish hike (:79)

I don't believe you are allowed to go further even if the trees have orange ribbons on them.  The hike will be less challenging when the path is reconnected.
