Looks like an interesting road for how populated it is out there. Thought I would through it out there and see if any one has been down.
Mapped on Google. (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=CA-60+W&daddr=33.888658,-117.071686&hl=en&geocode=Fc7KBQIdmDYG-Q%3B&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=1&sz=11&dirflg=h&sll=33.91013,-117.30044&sspn=0.320258,0.696945&ie=UTF8&ll=33.91003,-117.03804&spn=0.080065,0.174236&z=13)

The city has a sign up at the beginning of the trail, stating that the trail is no longer maintained by the city.
That basically sums up the trail. Its a non-maintained, pot-holed trail/road that's more suited for mountain bikes than road bikes.
For the most part, the only people that use the road are hunters (who shoot indiscriminately) and those practicing for, or doing Breathless Agony.

It's also the closest alternate route to the 60 freeway, if one is trying to travel east/west by bike in the area.

Since you're still investigating route options, San Timoteo Cyn would be one worth consideration. It'll take you from what's left of the town of Beaumont through Redlands. No need to deal with the 60. Actually, I don't know how you can safely navigate onto the WB 60 to get to Jack Rabbit Trail.
It's not too bad...you just have to watch for the deep potholes and sandy patches. There's also a house on there and people have reported loose dogs, but the owner was out there last year during Breathless Agony and said they were friendly. Have fun!
