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.


Bastian Loop of the Claw of the Dragon. Approx 175KM starting and ending at Hungry Mother State Park. There is a cool look out tower (48KM mark) Big Walker Lookout Tower 8711 Stoney Fork Rd Whytheville VA 276-663-4016, $6 admission, I cant tell but the road that leads to it could be un-paved. Its only 4KM so how bad can it be! If we cant take the dirt road we can hit the tower when we do the other loop that goes right by it from another direction. Around 119KM we turn left on State Rt 623 for 1KM, then u-turn and come back for a twisty ride. We hit North Tazewell with lots of amenities after the u-turn road.
Around 149KM mark look for Roaring Forks Rd on left looks fun but is probably dirt.
Route ends near where it starts at Conway Motors, from there its another 10KM back to HMSPark. Will stop at the Back of th Dragon Welcome center in Tazwel
