"Jester" Section Hiker


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.

Charissa Hipp reached out to Jester a few weeks ago with the idea of having some episodes centered around the topic of the power of healing in nature. After some thought, Jester decided why not bring Charissa on as a co-host!

So this week, Jester re-introduces us to Charissa to begin the co-hosting adventure! Charissa shares about her new job at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in Harpers Ferry, WV, how the power of healing in nature has impacted her life, and that October is HIKE for Mental Health Month.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
