In this article in the Dubai-based daily, AAN research about cross border routes is quoted:

A paper by the Afghanistan Analysts’ Network last year said there were well established “commuting routes” for the Afghan Taliban to travel over the border into Pakistan for rest, training or meetings and then return to fight.

It found 235 crossing points, of which only 20 were used frequently and only two have formal border controls in place.
