    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.

    About

    From Cleveland Dam head west on Baden Powell (BP).
    Leave BP to take a right up Millstream Rd/Craigmohr Dr, keeping left on Kildonan Rd.
    At the end of the road continue straight to a trail (Kildonan trail).
    Follow the trail, keeping left at the small clearing. Stay left at the Y junction, then ignore the first 90 deg left turn, and 20 meters later take a left at the T junction to Ballantree trail - There is a wooden post with the trail name here and some 'private property' signs above.
    Follow Ballantree (mostly up at the beginning then rolling) for about 15-20 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 and follow the wide fire access dirt road a long way up until you reach the metal (and newly rebuilt - 2022) Brother's Creek upper bridge.
    Cross the bridge then immediately head left and down on the trail running along Brother's creek's west bank.
    Continue running down this technical trail, past the junction with the Crossover trail, all the way down to its T intersection with the BP trail - The creek should always remain to your left.
    Go left (east) along the BP trail (this is also the TCT), across the lower Brother's Creek bridge, and continue following BP all the way back down to Cleveland Dam.
