Grass paths are decorative blocks.
In Bedrock Edition, grass paths may be mined with Silk Touch tools and drop itself.
Grass paths are primarily used for decoration, although they do prevent hostile mobs from spawning. They are a similar color to grass blocks placed in a desert or savanna biome. A notable difference is they are only 15⁄16th of a block high, therefore items that require a full block like torches and buttons cannot be placed on them.
A grass path block converts to dirt if any block with a solid material is placed on top.
In Java Edition, grass paths can be gathered in the inventory only using commands or pick block. When mined, even with a Silk Touch tool, they drop dirt. In Bedrock Edition, grass paths may be mined with Silk Touch tools and drop itself.
