Other than the connection through the novel Insomina (Atropos has one of Gage's sneakers) has anyone noticed any connection between Pet Sematary and the Dark Tower. I think the phrase "the clearing at the end of the path" is a nod to the Pet Sematary since its about death.
....welcome sir!....there are countless ties from novel to novel that result in the cosmology of the Kingverse.....and I would agree that what you have asked about is one such tie.....

This is not a Dark Tower connection, but when Jud takes Louis and his family down the path to visit the pet "sematary", he warns Ellie about the dangers of the woods and about getting lost in the woods. It is an interesting link to The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, but obviously coincidental. King wouldn't begin writing that book until decades later.
