The Greenway passing through the North Downs, in The Lord of the Rings Online

The Greenway was an ancient road which was meant to connect Arnor with Gondor.

Location

Beginning at Fornost Erain in northern Eriador, it met with the Great East Road at Bree, and then continued south to Tharbad on the Gwathló, where it crossed the river and became known as the Old South Road. From there it led into Dunland, arching slightly towards the Fords of Isen. After it crossed the Isen it was called the Great West Road, and ran along the Ered Nimrais through Anórien, then south past Minas Tirith and Osgiliath as the South Road and ended at Pelargir.

Other roads which intersected the Greenway included the King's Highway from Minas Tirith past Osgiliath to Minas Ithil, and at Pelargir the road which eventually ended at Erech, as well as the Harad Road which led into South Harad.

History

The Greenway was long the main path of traffic between Gondor and Arnor, but in the later Third Age after the division of Arnor in three realms it became less used. The use of the road virtually ended after the Great Plague and Long Winter when Tharbad was abandoned and its bridge ruined, and the road in Dunland was mostly lost.

Boromir took this road, crossing Tharbad but losing his horse, on his way to Rivendell. In the Reunited Kingdom of King Elessar the road was restored and became usable once more.
