Great recreational trail for someone just getting back into riding or looking for a good workout. This is just a flat, packed limestone trail for running, biking, and horseback riding. Every Tuesday from May - October they have the Nacho Ride where cyclists ride out to Eagle, NE for nachos, beer, and warm conversation. Check it out if you get a chance.

--- As of October, 2012, MOPAC East is a rolling to flat, West to East, limestone trail covering 50+ miles round trip. It starts in Lincoln, NE and dead ends in Elmwood, NE.

This trail is a "rails to trail", not a mountain bike trail, so hardcore types will be disappointed. It has no technical aspects. The trail gets somewhat rugged from erosion beyond Eagle, NE, so come prepared.

Unfortunately, the trail crosses several high speed highways and dirt roads, so caution is advised. In Nebraska, the cyclist is ALWAYS wrong when hit by a car....state law. Clue in.

Because of extreme wind conditions at times and Osange Orange tree thorns during the Fall color season (near Eagle, NE and beyond), it is wise to consider using heavy mud tires, thorn tubes, or tubeless during the thorn season. Being stranded without a couple of tubes is painful.

The Walton Bike store is no longer available in Walton (2012), so the only source of food and help is in Eagle and Elmwood, but no real bike shop.

Lincoln going East to Elmwood....
--- return is against the prevailing West wind, so you may want to arrange a pickup in Elmwood.

Chippy's Run is a very rough ride with tons of rocking back and forth and screaming. During the ride you will probably get bloody from the large hole where you spend most of the time. There are to ways to ride it. One way is from the front and then there is one that is from the back, which is my favorite.

Customer Service

There is a nice break off trail leading off the main trail called Chippy's Ride.

This train is great for putting on miles and opening up the bike for speed. Yes, this trail may be considered to be boring by some but you must consider it is a old RR track. I ride this trail at least once a week to keep my endurance up and stop and see the dudes at the Walton Trail Co (great service). If you want to ride this trail and are tired of the flat gravel road, take the horse trails....but watch out for the stickers and a few hourse riders occasionally.

I think the person who said that gravel roads have more to offer is crazy! I have used this travel for years and I am still not bored with it - It is 100% Nebraska, and that's the way I like it!

This trail deserves 1 star. Period. You are supposed to rate these trails fairly compared to other great mountain bike trails. 5 stars should be the best mountain bike trail ever invented! That considered, how can anyone give this trail 5 stars? Does that mean that it compares equally with Moab, Tsali, and Berryman? Or have you people just never ridden any real mountain bike trails? It just doesn't make any sense...

Last summer I rode MoPac East every day for a 25-mile round trip, and my friend and I were never bored. The trail is kept up well and definitely improved our endurance. We even rode it at night ... reflected light from the full moon lit up the limestone trail so that we didn't even need our bike lights. I love MoPac East, and plan to ride it extensively this summer. You do cross several roads some are fresh gravel so young riders should be cautious. Definitely wear a helmet, as you would under any other conditions.
