"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.

Jester is becoming content with her 15-year journey on the AT, interviews Trail Maintainer “TiggerMD” from the PATC, has a chat with “Pennies,” spends more time with “Wheezy Pee,” and a day with “Pajama Mama.”

Jester now heads north of Duncannon, PA, and plans to continue section hiking until Saturday, August 1.  We’ll see how far she gets before heading back to NC and back to work!!
