The Pine Cobble Trail is also an approach to the Appalachian Trail, which is intercepted 0.5 miles beyond the Pine Cobble outcropping. It also serves as an access to Vermont's Long Trail, which begins at the Massachusetts/Vermont border where these two converged trails enter the Green Mountain National Forest.
