"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.

Every September, the Friends of the Mountains To Sea Trail celebrate the Birthday of the MST. This September is no exception as Kate Dixon, Executive Director for the Friends of the MST, joins Jester to share all about what's happening this month to commemorate.

Besides sharing how everyone can participate in the MST Birthday month, Kate shares with us her recent announcement of retirement, information about the Kate Dixon Legacy Fund, and some exciting news about The Great State Trails Coalition.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
