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. 

Jul 9, 2022

Deb Taylor (Sundial) and Danny Mooney (Fiik) started their section hiking journey on the Appalachian Trail back in 2011 and have been hooked ever since. Prior to 2020, both Deb and Danny enjoyed being avid triathletes and became very involved in their local triathlon community. In 2020, when triathlons were being canceled due to covid, Deb and Danny stepped up their section hiking game and took more trips out to the AT and have become completely immersed in their hiking, the trail community, and trail culture.

Thanks for Listening and Happy Section Hiking!
