From Route 27, the CDP border follows Main Street north, Odiorne Street, Academy Street, Main Street again, Elm Street, North River Road, and Old Hedding Road to New Hampshire Route 125 (Calef Highway). The border turns south on Route 125, turns east on Lagoon Road, then turns south again following a power line and passing just east of two shopping centers before returning to Route 101.[2]

NH Route 101, with one exit in Epping, leads east 12 miles (19 km) to Interstate 95 in Hampton and west 19 miles (31 km) to Interstate 93 in Manchester. Route 125, which intersects Route 101 at Exit 7 in Epping, leads north 21 miles (34 km) to Rochester and south 20 miles (32 km) to Haverhill, Massachusetts. Route 27, the pre-expressway routing of Route 101, leads east 7 miles (11 km) to Exeter and west 6 miles (10 km) to Raymond.
