"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.

Have you ever wondered how your favorite trail organization keeps up with maintaining all their trail maps, guidebooks, and website? Jim Grode, Trail Resource Manager for the Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail Organization, joins Jester on today's episode to share with us just how some of that is done.

Jim also talks with us about his most recent book, Great Day Hikes On North Carolina's Mountains to Sea Trail. Jim walks us through how the book was created and who the book was created for. Jester and Jim also talk about the "40 Hike Challenge" that coincides with the book!

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
