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.

Spontaneous afternoon walk. Relatively, it's quite easy as the track is gently sloped and the path is well formed. It can be quite slippery after rain so be careful, especially when walking down the steps up near the summit. You are rewarded throughout the walk with wonderful views as you make your way around the mountain.
I was caught in a shower on the way up, but it cleared at the top leaving me with wonderful views and a rainbow. There are leeches, so be careful. I got caught by around 5 taking a photo at the top. There is also limited space and sheer cliffs, so be careful, especially when wet.
Loved it, was a great afternoon.
