Trail 10 Tours


Leo & Heather New, owners of and trail guides for Trail 10 House and ATV Tours offers unique, fun, and historical tours on the Hatfield McCoy Trail System. On November 30th, he will be guiding another Great Divide Ride for trail riders. The last Great Divide Ride was hosted on November 16th and like all his tours since September 2019, it was a sold-out crowd.



According to Leo & Heather, the main idea for this ride is to highlight the divide between the infamous Hatfield and McCoy families. He tells us, along the tour route, riders will be able to decide which way the tour will continue. Will it go through McCoy territory to see Aunt Betty McCoy’s house and the McCoy Cemetery or will it go past where Devil Anse Hatfield was born and the Hatfield Cemetery? Riders on the tour vote to decide where they go!



This fun ride is just one of many themed rides Trail 10 offers. Leo and wife, Heather, say they bounce ideas around and suddenly it’s like a light bulb goes off! They find a theme and know what the next ride will be!


“Riders seem to really like a theme and a new, fresh spin on things. It has worked extremely well for us,” says the pair


Through their themed trail rides, they hope to continue bringing tourists into Williamson, not only to stay in their lodging but to stay in other accommodations and support local restaurants and businesses. Since October, Trail 10 estimates they’ve brought well over 100 tourists to town and they’re eager to keep it growing!
