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 introduces us this week to Danny Bernstein. Danny has thousands of hiking miles under her feet with no plans of stopping anytime soon! As you will hear, Danny has a hiking resume that many dream of having over the course of their hiking career. From completing the Appalachian Trail with her husband, the Mountains To Sea Trail, and climbing Mt. Fuji in Japan!

Danny is also a believer in joining and becoming an active member in hiking clubs. She and her husband of many years were active in the Appalachian Mountain Club, and now pride themselves on being members of the Carolina Mountain Club.

Danny has also authored five books, including a book titled, The Mountains To Sea Trail across North Carolina: Walking a Thousand Miles through Wildness, Culture and History (Natural History).

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
