According to the following article:

http://www.exit109.com/~jeremy/news/providers/traceroute.html

"Visibility of private IP addresses doesn't necessarily (or even 
usually) mean that the route does not work. It is often simply the way 
the administrators of the target network have set up their system. In 
fact, the output above, despite the private IP address and the timeouts, 
shows a route that works perfectly well for web access."
