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.

As all of you know, the Mountains To Sea trail is becoming more near and dear to Jester's heart. Jester has a special interview to share with you all for this episode, as she had the opportunity to enjoy a conversation with Jeff Brewer. Jeff was the first President for the Friends of the Mountains To Sea Trail. You will hear that Jeff was asked to accept this role from a very iconic trail advocate and visionary, Allen De Hart.

Jeff also has a passion for trail maintenance and building trail for the MST in the Falls Lake area of North Carolina. At the core of this episode, you will hear his passion for volunteering and giving back to the trails we love so much.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
