The hike to Courthouse Rock is off  Newfound Gap Road, about 3 miles from Sugarlands Visitor  Center.   It is an off trail or manway left from settlers, like Joe Quilliams, and will show us:  some good lookouts, their homesites, Quilliams cave still, Quilliams Falls, where they bathed and obtained drinking and cooking water, Judge Rock, and 60’ Courthouse Rock.  After we hike, we can go in Sugarlands Visitor Center to see the free museum and 20 minute movie about the park in their theater, if people are interested.
