Teanaway Falls is a modest cascade of about 30 feet along the North Fork of the Teanaway River adjacent to the Esmerelda Basin trailhead. The falls sluice down a shallow gorge, cascading a few feet here and there, getting steeper and steeper and finally culminating in a scenic cascade of about 15 feet in height. This isn't a destination I would recommend targeting solely for the waterfall, but those looking for a good hike with a waterfall included are urged to undertake the climb to either Lake Ann or Ingalls Lake after enjoying the falls for a while.
