This week Jester begins her journey to hike all 40 Day Hikes on the MST from the book Great Day Hikes ON North Carolina's Mountains-To-Sea Trail.


Jester begins her quest to complete all 40 Day Hikes from the book Great Day Hikes ON North Carolina's Mountains-to-Sea Trail. In this week's episode, we hear about Hikes 1, 2, and 3. Jester starts with Hike #1 at the Western Terminus of the MST at Clingman's Dome. Hike #2 brings a 0.7-mile hike that has a lot of awesome surprises, and Hike #3 brings few views but a sign of fall and an amazing trail.

Thanks for listening and Happy Section Hiking!
