    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.

    About

    Stage 8 of the GM Ringway, the new long-distance trail for Greater Manchester is an adventurous route that ventures high into the Dark Peak. With its spectacular scenery, it has a feel of the Scottish Highlands in places.

    Highlights include:
    - Two lovely old lanes, with panoramic views across the Etherow and Longdendale valleys
    - A ancient-seeming track that climbs into the Peak District National Park via an old stone bridge
    - A brief trackless section through the appropriately named 'Wilderness' – the highest point of the entire GM Ringway trail
    - Breathtaking views over Saddleworth's Chew Valley
    - A leisurely finish via Chew Piece Plantation, the only remaining area of long-standing deciduous woodland near Dove Stones Reservoir.

    The route, which is suitable for experienced walkers with good mapreading and navigation skills, requires good visibility. It includes a considerable amount of ascent (535 m / 1755 ft) and descent and crosses high ground, including some rough, trackless terrain. Parts of the route are likely to be muddy or boggy depending on the season.

    There are no facilities until the end of the route, but an optional (and pretty) diversion is shown at the start of the route that includes the cafe, farm shop and toilets at Lymefield Garden Centre near Broadbottom.

    Warnings

    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.
