"Jester" Section Hiker


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. 

Apr 9, 2022

The Section Hiker Spotlight this week goes to guest Cindy Taylor. Cindy initially reached out to Jester via email to share her goal of completing all the trails in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in sections.

What you will hear is that there is so much more to her current journey than just hiking the miles. Cindy shares with us about the loss of both of her parents, working in healthcare, her own mental health, and learning to document her journey along the way.

Thanks for Listening and Happy Section Hiking!
