Organizing Tasks and Epics

Tasks have been great to help us get work done in manageable chunks and we used Epics so we could group the tasks into key Features but now we could use another level of grouping at the Roadmap level. 

Are there...
Sub-Epics under Epics?
Features under Epics?
or Epics the I can group under a Sprint and show Sprints on the Roadmap?

It feels like I am missing one more layer for this tool to be Epic!

Any suggestions?

Like Nic has already mentioned, to get more layers and structurize your task hierarchy better, you will need to look for some apps on the marketplace - such as BigPicture from SoftwarePlant (the company I am part of). With its features, you can organize your task hierarchy in various ways:
