Rosendin Park is located on top of a ridge that overlooks Anderson Reservoir and Morgan Hill. Open to hikers and bicyclists, these trails are quick and enjoyable. The trailhead for Lakeview is located in the reservoir parking lot, and the trail rises quickly to the top of the ridge where you will catch glimpses of the lake through the trees and brush. A bench with a nice view can be found on this trail as well. The Lakeview Trail connects to the Rancho Laguna Seca Trail that cuts through the middle of the Lakeview and Grey Pines Trail Loop. At this junction you will find another viewing bench that overlooks a now dried up lake bed.

Rancho Laguna Seca quickly becomes Grey Pines Trail. This leg of the the hike offers a lot more shade than the Lakeview Trail, as it hugs the side of a hill and has more vegetation. Nearing the connection point back to Lakeview, you will catch a great view of Morgan Hill, although it is through tree foliage. From here, it's a quick downhill hike back to the parking lot.
