The "Jester" Section Hiker is the premier podcast with the spotlight on section hikers!

The stories you will hear are about everyday people who, in addition to their everyday lives, make the commitment to hike long-distance trails where every section is a new beginning. 

From National Scenic Trails to National Parks and all Trails in between, listen with your host, Julie “Jester” Gayheart, to hear what it means to be a section hiker and the adventure that awaits them section by section.

Join me as I chat with Allegheny Trail Board Member, Justin Mullins and Outreach Coordinator, Nicolle Sawczyszyn. Justin and Nicolle share about the Allegheny Trail, the Trail 50th Anniversary, Nicolle's quest to complete a section hike of the trail by September 2024,  and Justin's quest to complete a thru hike of the Allegheny Trail in Jan./Feb. 2024. Justin will be raising funds for the trail via a Go Fund Me Fundraiser. We will also share about our launch for the Allegheny Trail Podcast that I will be moderating and producing coming very soon! Exciting Times Ahead!
