The MoPac Trail is a 14.7-mile long unpaved pathway located between Omaha, Springfield and South Bend in Eastern Nebraska. The trail starts to the south of Omaha and travels alongside NE-50 and NE-31 for much of the route. The trail was constructed along an abandoned railroad right-of-way and goes past miles of wide open farmland and has trees along both sides for much of the way. 

The highlight of the trail is the half mile long railroad bridge that the trail uses to cross the Platte River called the Lied Platte River Bridge. The trail tops on the south side of the Platte River near the small community of South Bend.

Future plans for the MoPac Trail are to expand the rout to stretch as far as Lincoln. The MoPac Trail East and MoPac Trail West sections are already developed in the Lincoln area.


The MoPac Trail has a wide graded surface of crushed stone and relatively few road crossings. The trail is open for bike riding, running and walking.


The MoPac Trail goes past the following communities: Omaha, Springfield and South Bend.
