I started hiking the CCC trail by parking my car at the top of the hill in the parking lot near the Visitor's Center.  I then hiked the CCC trail down to the Amphitheater, then crossed the street to hike the Pioneer Nature Trail loop.  I then hiked the CCC trail back (uphill) to my car, which provided a good cardio workout.

I found the CCC trail to be very scenic.  The views from the ridge are very impressive.  It is a short hike that I would definitely recommend.

By contrast, I found the Pioneer Nature Trail to be disappointing.  It really didn't impress me in any way.  It's just a short dirt trail to walk on and not a trail I would recommend.
