    I can confirm the demise of the Cranford Trails. It sucks man. I loved that place when I was a kid.

    I believe they were started by Jeff Lamb, Rich Carolan, George Salzmann, Myself (when my brother would let me), probably a bunch of long haired 80’s rocking degenerates.

    Later….. Chris Diaz, Jerzy Swan, Jamie Pikula, Steve Toth (the Union Connection)

    Cranford Locals…. Ray Johnson, Chris Norstrand, Dave Sarantino, Ryan Olesky

    I was there through 3 generations of BMXers…. now they are gone…

    anyone have any fond memories they’d like to share about these very flat, but fun trails?

    are they really that far gone? I went there a while ago. Is it worth trying to rebuild? That is somethng I would be down to help out with. Did not go there that much, but when i did had good times(mid 90’s) btw i got 3 14 year old kids that would want to help also.
