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 hike her way East across the State of North Carolina by completing the 40 Day Hikes from the Book, Great Day Hikes ON North Carolina's Mountains to Sea Trail. This episode features Hikes 15, 16, and 17. Jester also took the opportunity to go to Priddy's General Store in Danbury, NC and was able to get a quick interview with Jane Priddy!

Hike #15 took place at Pilot Mountain State Park with a 6.3 mile hike around the prominent peak of Pilot Mountain, Hike #16 was a great hike through Hanging Rock State Park that included a visit to Moore's Knob Fire Tower, and Hike #17 featured a 2.1 mile hike surrounded by pine trees.
