A short distance downstream from Qanqan Falls is this great little waterfall. The unnamed stream begins by dropping over a 10' plunge, followed by a 5' cascade. Immediately below that the creek drops 54' over a pretty cliff. To the left of the falls is a huge rock that is sticking out of the hillside. I named the falls after this "hanging rock". Getting a clear view of the main drop is pretty sketchy and I don't really recommend trying. This isn't a good place to twist an ankle or break a leg.
