Nestled amongst the rolling hills and abundant greenery of southwest Wake County lies the scenic Trinity Creek neighborhood of Holly Springs, North Carolina.
Though a relatively new community established in the early 2000s, Trinity Creek has quickly become one of Holly Springs' most idyllic and family-friendly places to call home.

Trinity Creek was master-planned and developed by DRB Homes starting in the early 2000s, as part of the booming growth Holly Springs experienced.
The community was aptly named for its natural setting amongst three babbling creeks and heavily wooded homesites.

Walking trails wind through the neighborhood, connecting to the larger town greenway system. The peaceful creeks and abundant wooded homesites make Trinity Creek feel tucked away in nature.
