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. 

Jan 9, 2021

Several months ago Jester reached out to some Facebook Group pages asking for Section Hikers who were hiking the Pacific Northwest Trail to be featured on the podcast. Colleen "Teacup" Drake reached out to Jester in early 2020 and they have finally connected to record.

Colleen shares with us some great stories of hiking and camping with her parents, what she does to train for Section Hikes at 71 years old, and her own Rules for Section Hiking. As you will hear, Colleen has been hiking and camping from a young age and has no intention of stopping.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
