The Green Link has a mix of some on road and mostly off road sections to keep the route as level as is possible. It is complemented by a series of paths offering the adjacent communities of North Motherwell, Orbiston, Forgewood and Calder Valley a range more local routes.

The Greenlink and the South Calder Walkway are surrounded by mature woodland in the South Calder valley and are home to a diverse variety of wildlife. The communities of Daisy Park, Forgewood and Orbiston all benefit from direct links to the cycleway and paths. 

Since the Greenlink path was completed a number of projects have been undertaken, the Greenlink Mountain Bike Skills Zone is now open to the public, and the Greenlink Allotment Project site which includes 33 individual plots, seven plots for community groups, has now been completed.

The allotment site is based in the Forgewood area of Motherwell, on the corner of Fife Drive and Kinloch Drive, adjacent to the Greenlink cycleway.
