    From LHR walk North down Summer House Lane. Once at the wood line you turn right. Following signs for Watersmeet and Hillsford Bridge. You are treated to wonderful views up the East Lyn Valley as you walk high on the valley edge. Once above Watersmeet the route heads dwn the hill, through Myrtlebury Iron Age Enclosure. When you are there you can see why the spot was picked. You then take the, in places, rocky path down to Watersmeet. From there you follow the East Lyn river down to Lynmouth. The path on the left hand bank keeps you closer to the river. Once in Lynmouth its a case of deciding how you return to LHR. There is the straight up route or, as the map indicates, the funicular railway can bring you up to Lynton before walking along Lynway to Lynbridge. Again here there is a 'straight up the hill' option or, as the map, the slightly more sedate, picturesque route to the top of Summer House Hill and back to LHR.

    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.
