    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.

    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 Balantree (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 following the wide and rocky Fire Access road up a long way until you come to the former site of the Brother's creek upper bridge.
    Ford the creek and immediately go right and up towards Blue Gentian lake.
    At the lake take a right and keeping the lake to your left run along the boardwalk to almost encircle the lake in a counter-clockwise direction; in 2-3 minutes you are back at Baden Powell near the top of Hollyburn Chute.
    Take a left and run down the chute and continue down Baden Powell trail all the way back to Cleveland Dam.
