About the Calorie Calculator

Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.

When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.

Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

GM Ringway Stage 11 (Littleborough - Norden) offers lovely moorland walking interspersed with canals, reservoirs and waterfalls.

Highlights include:
- A very pretty section of the Rochdale Canal
- The shores of the expansive Watergrove Reservoir
- Panoramic views from the Pennine Bridleway as it contours around the hills north of Rochdale
- A full circuit of the gorge-like Healey Dell, with its spectacular waterfalls and dramatic railway viaduct
- Beautiful views over Greenbooth Reservoir.

Careful attention to the route is needed in parts.

Although the route does not go as high as the preceding or following stages, it is best suited to experienced walkers with good map-reading and navigation skills. Most of the paths are well made but a few parts can be boggy or slippery, even in summer.



Please be careful to observe all signs for rights of way when following other people's routes, as we cannot guarantee that they do not cross private or hazardous land.

Please also be considerate and mindful of the interests of local residents when parking and following routes.
