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.

Jessica launched Virginia Outdoor Adventures because she wanted to provide a platform for Virginians of all backgrounds to tell their stories, to share their connection to the outdoors, and to build a local community where the outdoors are for everyone. She also wanted to tell these stories through a conservation lens to encourage others to be stewards of the outdoors.

Jessica is passionate about featuring outdoor recreation and travel opportunities close to home, while also supporting local businesses, tourism, and economic development.

Jessica is an avid hiker, cyclist, climber, backpacker, kayaker, photographer, and birder and has earned the Virginia State Parks “Master Hiker” designation.
