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 talks with Josh "PBS" Smith, creator of The MST Guide on this episode of the Podcast. Josh takes us on his journey from being in the Air Force to the creation of The MST Guide App. In February 2018 Josh thought he would be spending several months hiking the Appalachian Trail, but after hiking 1000 miles and reaching Harper's Ferry, WV his plans shifted to a new dream and a different trail.

A big "Thank You" to our show sponsor, The MST Guide by Pocket Trails. Providing up-to-date maps and extensive trail information, Pocket Trails plans to give MST hikers everything they need to know, both when they need it and in the palm of their hand. The MST Guide App is now available in the Google Play Store and coming to the iPhone very soon!
