NJ Adventurers Hit the Trail

For many shoppers, a love of the great outdoors is a key facet of what makes the Subaru nameplate so attractive. Whether it’s the lineup’s outstanding capability on tough terrain or the company’s commitment to preserving our nation’s National Parks and open space, Subaru goes hand in hand with adventure.

Fortunately for drivers near Subaru of Morristown, there are plenty of great destinations to head for right here in New Jersey when you’re itching to get some fresh air. Lace up your hiking boots, hop in your Subaru, and let’s hit the trail for a hike!

Hacklebarney State Park

A staple for those looking to snap some nature photos, Hacklebarney State Park in Chester, NJ, is centered around the Black River. The paths here are well maintained and not too steep, making it fairly accessible for groups that include children, pets, or relatively inexperienced hikers.

The clearly defined paths here cover roughly six miles; if you’re looking for something quick, a scenic circuit checks in at a bit below four miles. You’ll also find plenty of picnic tables, making this a solid pick for a leisurely afternoon.

Buttermilk Falls

Centered around New Jersey’s highest waterfall, this trail is easy to reach via car; the 200-foot waterfall is just steps away from a parking lot. The hiking itself, though, is a bit tougher!

From the falls, an initially steep path will take you to Crater Lake via a section of the Appalachian Trail. From here, you’ll head to Hemlock Pond before making your way back to the falls. The loop is just under eight miles; you can take other loops for a shorter circuit, but the steep ascent will always be the starting point.

High Point State Park

If you liked the state’s highest waterfall, then you’re sure to love the view from New Jersey’s aptly named High Point State Park. The monument at the park’s peak is–you guessed it–the state’s highest point, checking in at 1,803 feet.

The park includes a number of meandering trails, with circuits ranging from three to eight miles. Some of the trails once again overlap with bits of the Appalachian Trail. When you reach the monument, a climb of 220 steps leads to a viewing platform that offers extensive views of the New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania landscape.

Wherever you set your sights, the ride to and from the trailhead is sure to be an adventure behind the wheel of your favorite Subaru.

Subaru Service Center in NJ Helps to Ensure Safe Stops

Nearly every day, you get into the driver’s seat, turn the key, and get going. Sooner or later it’s time to get stopping, and you rely on your brakes to bring you and your vehicle to a safe stop. Of course, bringing several thousand pounds of metal to a safe stop is no easy task!

If you’ve visited our NJ Subaru service center for brake work in the past, then you know that your brake pads or brake shoes will naturally wear down over time from applying pressure to your vehicle’s spinning rotors or drums; that’s how your brakes slow down your vehicle. There’s a lot more going on when you put your foot on the brake pedal, though, thanks to your Subaru’s advanced antilock braking system (ABS).

Performing Under Pressure

When your brakes are applied, they create friction to slow down the spinning of your wheels. With too much pressure, though, the brakes will simply cause the wheel to lock up and skid. In the past, drivers had to hone their skills and manually apply and reduce pressure to slow the car down as much as possible without locking the wheels.

Modern vehicles rely on ABS instead. The Subaru brakes that NJ drivers rely on make use of ABS to prevent your wheels from skidding without unduly reducing your stopping distance. To accomplish this, your ABS makes use of speed sensors in the wheels, valves that control brake pressure, and a control module that makes sense of the information to control the valves.

If the ABS light on your dash is illuminated, it’s an indication that there’s a problem somewhere along the line. While a speed sensor is the most likely issue due to the exposure they have to the elements, any component could be the problem.

Our certified technicians have the training and advanced diagnostic tools to get to the bottom of any trouble you’re having with your brakes or ABS.
