It’s a suitable place for a walk and ideal for cyclists, including the 'wee' ones. The Greenway provides panoramic views across the lough to the mountains of Mourne, while Slieve Foye towers over it on the Louth side. The Greenway runs through fields full of grazing sheep, over old level crossings and even a few bridges. There are trees, wildflowers and birds to be seen along most of the way too.
The Greenway provides a safe mainly off road trail but there remains an isolated on-road section of 300 metres approaching Omeath.
