The headwaters of Headlight Creek run together in a gorgeous meadow on the southeast corner of Ingalls Peak. As several small streams join together in what at times resemble a small tarn, they accelerate out a sluice and then skip over the edge of the plateau, cascading about 100 feet down the polished granite almost immediately below where the Ingalls Lake trail crosses the stream. Unfortunately, since the drainage is so dependant on snowmelt to sustain it, the falls likely run dry by August (maybe September in heavy snow years) and likewise are neither accessible nor visible until the snow melts out around Ingalls Pass.
- Headlight Basin Falls is the name of this waterfall.
Headlight Basin Falls is found immediately below the Ingalls Lake trail, about halfway between Ingalls Pass and Ingalls Lake - approximately 4 miles from the North Fork Teanaway trailhead. Getting below the falls for a clear view of the waterfall is tricky and involves scrambling on bare rock.
