"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.

Sarah Chappell (Troubadour) joins Jester's Class of 2022 Section Hikers for this week's episode. Sarah enjoys hiking for several reasons. To reconnect with wild places, to get reacquainted with herself, and to test her limits, so she can grow stronger. The Appalachian Trail is her favorite. Each summer since 2019, she has embarked on long section hikes, between 100-200 miles, along one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. She sings to the mountains, forages mushrooms, and learns the history of the people and the places she walks through.

Thanks for Listening and Happy Section Hiking!
