D. B. Voight was an early settler of the upper Puyallup valley. In 1866 the Voight family consisted of D.E. and Amelia Voight homesteaded on land near the creek. The creek flows northwest from near the western edge of the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and joins South Prairie Creek near Crocker to flow into the Carbon River at Orting. The tour winds back and forth in ascending an abrupt mountain slope, clinging to the crest of a high plateau. Straight ahead Mount Rainier lifts itself high above clumps of peaks, while far below is Voight Creek.
