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 North up Nancy Greene Way to the Grouse parking lot.
Head up and East on Baden Powell trail all the way to Mosquito Creek bridge.
After crossing the bridge go sharp left (you're still following the "BP" markers).
Continue following Baden Powell markers (be careful to make another left a couple of minutes past the water tank) for another 15-20 minutes until you come to a small bench with a view (on some days).
This bench is at the junction with St. George's trail and marks the turn-around point for our run.
Retrace your path back to Cleveland Dam.
