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.

Dr. Matt Tracey came into Jester's life in the spring of 2023. Jester was at the end of her rope and hanging on by a thread when she decided to seek help one last time for her right foot. After three surgeries there seemed no hope but a Physical Therapist that understood that hikers are athletes too has changed her life. Jester shares her story of a failed surgery, a corrective surgery, and a nerve removal all led to a path of strength, mobility, balance, and walking pain free!
