Trail is plenty fine even for old school mountain bikes.  This last week (July 19ish 2017) it was graded and for right now has a patchy mix of hardpack, small rocks, and loose dirt.
Jul 22, 2017 near Yucaipa, CA
At the summit of Zanja Peak, enjoy this view to the south.
Mar 11, 2017 near Yucaipa, CA
If you're on the short segment shared with a wide "road" this is where the trail branches off and continues down to Grape Street
