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.

Jester continues to introduce us to individuals out section hiking in 2022. This week we hear from Celeste Queen, who is retired and living life. Celeste is out section hiking on the Mountains To Sea Trail with no plans of stopping anytime soon! Celeste also leads group hikes for one of the North Carolina Chapters of the Trail Dames. On any given day, you can find Celeste enjoying time on the MST, leading a hike for the Trail Dames, or sharing with others why it's so fun being out on trail!

Thanks for Listening and Happy Section Hiking!
