Note: The eastern end of the MoPac Trail East from Fletcher Avenue to Wabash is closed due to storm damage incurred in summer 2015. Repairs have not yet begun, and a scheduled reopening date is unknown.
The MoPac Trail follows the old corridor of what used to be the Missouri Pacific Railroad's Omaha Belt Line (hence "MoPac"). This eastern segment is the more rural and extends between Lincoln and Wabash, traveling on a crushed stone path through prairie, woodland and farmland for nearly 22 miles. Along the way you may encounter wildlife, and you'll definitely experience some of Nebraska's lovely scenery. A separate equestrian trail, called the Charles L. Warner Equestrian Trail, is provided between 98th and A streets and Wabash.
The MoPac Trail East connects to the MoPac Trail West in Lincoln; the trails join near 84th Street. There are plans to extend the trail over the Platte River at South Bend and connect with a the MoPac Trail in Springfield and eventually lead to Omaha.
Parking access is in Lincoln at 84th Street. In Walton and Eagle, street parking is available. There's trailhead parking in the Village Park in Elmwood.
Equestrian parking is available at the Charles L. Warner trailhead at 98th & A streets. Voluntary user passes ($1/day or $5/year) are available at several self-service donation boxes along the trail and at the Walton Trail Company in Walton.
