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.

Meet Carol Chirpich and Debbie Shiffer as they share their intentions to section hike on the Continental Divide Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail starting this spring through the summer months. Carol (Late Bloom Hiker) and Debbie (Wrinkled Wanderer) share a little bit about who they are, why they love to be out section hiking, and where you can follow along on their journey on social media.

Thanks for Listening and Happy Section Hiking!
