    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

    Shimmying down from the end of Donna's Track to the Grose River is wild. Best to take a PLB and a friend, and expect to spend many hours off track working out how to navigate steep terrain and avoid falling off waterfalls.

    Along the Grose you can find the remnants of the Engineer's Track to speed up your scrambling. Ascending the nose from Faulconbridge Point is intuitive - look out for the occasional rock pile to make sure you're on the right track.

    All up the whole thing took me 5 hours, running whenever possible: https://www.strava.com/activities/3966905192
