This downhill trail is accessed by taking the first right after leaving the Sugarcamp Mountain Trailhead. You'll be on the Multi-Use Trail (East Half) and right before this trail goes over the mountain, take a right turn onto Feathered Indian.

You'll immediately be greeted by several rock features and drops, followed by a long downhill stretch ending in two large berms. The trail then flattens out for a while until you enter an area defined by multiple rock formations. Ride through these, and then negotiate a sweeping left-hand turn.

Then, enjoy a unique and scenic ride among caves, rock cliffs, and mountain laurel. The trail ties into The Escalator at the bottom. The entrance to this trail is currently unmarked by signage.
