"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 begins her quest to complete all 40 Day Hikes from the book Great Day Hikes ON North Carolina's Mountains-to-Sea Trail. In this week's episode, we hear about Hikes 1, 2, and 3. Jester starts with Hike #1 at the Western Terminus of the MST at Clingman's Dome. Hike #2 brings a 0.7-mile hike that has a lot of awesome surprises, and Hike #3 brings few views but a sign of fall and an amazing trail.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
