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.

From Cleveland Dam head West on Baden Powell trail up through the British Properties to Millstream Rd/Craigmohr Dr.
Right up the hill on Craigmohr keeping left onto Kildonan Rd.
Up the hill on Kildonan and straight onto the trail that starts at the end of the road.
Follow the trail, keeping left at the small clearing. Stay left, ignore the first trail to your left, and 20 meters later take a left to Ballantree trail - There is a wooden post with the trail name here.
Follow Ballantree (mostly up at the beginning then rolling) for about 15 minutes until it intersects at a Y junction with the Brother's Creek Fire Access road. There's a signpost here indicating the trail names.
Go right and up following the Fire Access road for about 10 minutes until you come to a large and newly cut log bench and another signpost that indicates the Crossover Trail.
Go left off the Fire Access road and follow the Crossover Trail westward. Continue straight thru a 4-way junction with the Railway trail, and after 15-20 minutes you'll cross an old wooden bridge over Brother's Creek.
Very shortly after crossing the bridge, you'll come to a T intersection with the Brother's Creek trail. Go left and down.
After 5-10 minutes of downhill, you'll end up down at the Baden Powell trail (signposted).
Take the easily-missed sharp left onto the Baden Powell Trail and follow the Baden Powell markers and signposts all the way back to Cleveland Dam.
