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 up Nancy Greene Way to Grouse parking lot.
Head up and East on Baden Powell to Mosquito Creek bridge.
After crossing the bridge go sharp left and continue following BP markers for another 15-20 minutes until you come to a junction with the Dreamweaver trail (if you reached the St. Georges bench you've missed it - go back 100 meters).
Head sharp left and up following Dreamweaver until a junction with lower Peer Gynt trail.
If you reached a scary looking L shaped bridge - Enjoy it, then turn around and retrace your steps 100 meter to reach the Peer Gynt junction.
Go up the loamy Peer Gynt trail until it spits you out at Mountain Hwy.
Go right and down Mountain Hwy for about 1 minute to find the St Georges trail-head signpost on your right, and go down that trail all the way back to St Georges bench.
At the bench take a right and follow Baden Powell back to Cleveland Dam.
