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. 

Jan 16, 2021

Jester set out on her Birthday in September 2020 to begin the goal of hiking all 40 Day Hikes from the Book, Great Day Hikes ON North Carolina's Mountains to Sea Trail. In this episode, Jester focuses on Day Hikes 18, 19, and 20. As you will hear these particular 3 hikes ended up being so much more than Jester expected.

Tune in as Jester has a chance meeting with a Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail Board Member, a Section Hiker working on completing the entire Mountains to Seat Trail, and a fellow hiker working on completing the Day Hikes!
