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.

We also hear about the newest member of her family; "Faith". Special thanks to Hostel Owners Tina from the Quarter Way Inn and Neville from Woods Hole Hostel for helping Jester answer a listener submitted question.
