Named for an old Spanish Mission, San Francisco de Potano which ministered to the Indians living here centuries ago. Over time the early settlers continually mispronounced San Francisco until the area became known as San Felasco. "Hammock" is an Indian word that means "shady." The lower two thirds of San Felasco has been set aside for hiking only. The northern most 2,000 acres have been designated for multi-use purposes including horseback riding, off-road bicycling and hiking.
