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.

A classic walk taking in Malham Cove and all of the other Malham attractions. This route visits Janet's Foss and then the waterfall in Gordale Scar but avoids you having to climb it by doubling back and then taking a different path. Some steep ascent and descent, including the Malham Cove steps. Along the way this route visits Malham Tarn, which is often left out of some of the other walking guides - including the Julia Bradbury ITV programme - but which is also well worth a visit. Start and end at The Listers Arms in Malham.
