If you have a VPN established and routing setup correctly then a
traceoute will show only the main gateway for the VPN and the other
endpoint ... then any other routes after that.

Like this:

[johnny at myth kernel]$ traceroute
traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 38 byte
 1 (  0.720 ms  0.424 ms  0.369 ms
 2 (  89.227 ms  87.933 ms  114.058 ms
