It is entirely possible that of all the trails the Red River Gorge has to offer, this one is the most popular. Two reasons quickly come to mind: the Indian Steps, a water-scoured formation up a steep sandstone cliff that rewards with a commanding view, and Indian Arch, to which the trail climbs. Other notable formations, such as Adena Arch and Cloud Splitter, lie hidden back in the forest. The forest, too, is dense and seems nearly impenetrable at times.
