You would have to post your config for me to answer that. Possibly a loopback interface.

I'm guessing that this is a serial interface running PPP.

This is normal PPP behavior. With PPP on a serial link, you'll always see two entries in the routing table.  I knew the reason once (long ago), but I've forgotten why the protocol does this.

Sorry. I filed it away as "nice to know", not "need to know" and it's long gone. I put it up there with where did the "cisco" name come from, why is the sky blue and why does the phone ring after you sit down at the dinner table.

Suffice it to say that what you're seeing is normal and it's always going to happen with PPP.
