COMMENTS

See A208650.  The trace of a path is a permutation of (1,2,...,n) if and only if the range of the path is {1,2,...,n}.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..13.

Nick Early, Generalized Permutohedra, Scattering Amplitudes, and a Cubic Three-Fold, arXiv:1709.03686 [math.CO], 2017.

EXAMPLE

Taking n=3:

row 1:  {1},{2},{3} ---------> 1,2,3

row 2:  {1,2},{1,3},{2,3} ---> 1,1,2,2,3,3

row 3:  {1,2,3} -------------> 1,2,3

3 ways to choose a number from row 1,

4 ways to choose a different number from row 2,

1 way to choose remaining number from row 3.

Total:  a(3) = 1*4*3 = 12 paths.
