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.

Over the last few years, today's newest member of Jester's Class of 2022 Section Hikers has spent time section hiking the Allegheny Trail in West Virginia. Jester and Laura chat about how she got her trail name "Babycakes," Laura's plans for her section hike on the Allegheny Trail this year, and what it's been like for her to serve a two-year term as the Board President for the West Virginia Scenic Trails Association.

Thanks for Listening and Happy Section Hiking!
