It's quite simple: The CCC, and the WPA that followed, had a primary goal of putting people to work. Building trails in a wilderness area that is what would now be called a privately owned public space? Sure, it improves the area and a bunch of men can be kept busy doing it.
Heck, the WPA went around building outhouses for people in rural areas.
