"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 has completed the 40 Hike Challenge and all 40 Day hikes from the Book, Great Day Hikes ON North Carolina's Mountains To Sea Trail. In this last episode of the series Jester shares with you day hikes 37-40. Jester brings you along as she completes the road walk on Cedar Island, visits the lighthouse on Cape Hatteras, takes in the views on the Pea island wildlife refuge, has a crazy trek on the Beach, and finishes with hike #40 on the tallest active sand dune at Jockey's Ridge State Park, the Eastern Terminus of the Mountains To Sea Trail.
