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.

This week, Jester brings us the highlights from Day Hikes 27 - 31 from the Book, Great Day Hikes ON North Carolina's Mountains to Sea Trail. Each time Jester goes out to spend time hiking on the MST there seems to be something special with every hike.

This week's special moments not only come from the day hikes themselves but from interviews with Mayor Alice Butler with the Town of Roseboro, NC and Ben Jones, who is the Coastal Crescent Project Manager with the Friends of the Mountains to Sea Trail. Once you hear from these two, you will know why the episode is titled "Hope on the MST".

Thank You to our show Sponsor, The MST Guide by Pocket Trails. Providing up-to-date maps and extensive trail information, Pocket Trails plans to give MST hikers everything they need to know, both when they need it and in the palm of their hand. The MST Guide App is now available in the Google Play Store and coming to the iPhone very soon!
