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 the parking lot at Blue Hole, follow the trail through Walsingham, taking a detour to see the old “swimming” cave (although swimming, at least with lotion on your skin, is now frowned upon). Exit by the Tom Moore’s Tavern and walk out to Harrington Sound Road, then turn right and walk along Trinity Church Road, turning right at North Shore Road at Bailey’s Bay. Join the Railway Trail then continue into Coney Island, then retrace your steps, past the Duck’s Puddle Cricket Oval. For a splendid view of Coney Island, cut up behind the Swizzle Inn, then continue past the Grotto Bay Hotel and to your starting point at Blue Hole Hill.
