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 the Baden Powell trail up through the British Properties to Millstream Rd/Craigmohr Dr.
Continue straight on the Baden Powell trail across Millstream Rd., up the stairs, and continue for another 15-30 minutes to the lower Brother's Creek bridge and waterfall.
Cross the bridge, continuing on the Baden Powell trail for another 5 minutes or so until you come to a wide gravel road.
Go right and uphill (still on the Baden Powell trail) for another couple of minutes until the road re-enters the woods at a junction with the Skyline/Trans-Canada trail.
Continue straight, following the "BP" trail markers uphill through the forest. This is the Hollyburn Chute.
When you come to an intersection with the Crossover trail, continue straight on the Baden Powell.
After 20-30 minutes of climbing the Chute, the trail comes out to a large open area. This is the West Lake Plateau and the top of the chute.
Retrace your steps back to Cleveland Dam.
Note: Typically you'll run into snow on this route during Spring well before you get to the West Lake Plateau or sometimes even the Crossover trail intersection. Go as far as you feel comfortable with, then retrace your steps from that point.
