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.

Jester continues introducing us to her Class of 2022 Section Hikers and this week you hear from Canadian Kelly McDonald or "Generous Dude." Kelly has spent the last 40 years hiking in the Canadian Rockies and working on completing the Great Divide Trail. Kelly is a certified Field Leader Instructor with the Outdoor Council of Canada, a Scouter, and a volunteer with the Great Divide Trail Association. Some of his big hikes over the past few years have been the West Coast Trail, the Teton Crest Trail, and parts of sections A and B of Canada's Great Divide Trail.

Thanks for Listening and Happy Section Hiking!
