    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

    Start/finish at Ash Grove Cabins. Or can park at a community ctr about 3 miles south on 276.

    The NC side of CH is not nearly as difficult as the SC side. It rolls and there is really one section for about 1/4 mile that hard: it avgs around 8%. The decent down the SC side has some rough sections part way down. A few holes, too. Its twisty in places with hairpins.

    There are rumble strips after you enter into SC up to the ranger station.

    Ascending that SC side is fun once you get in the woods. The switch backs are steep (around 12%) but short. It's a good climb to set a tempo.

    Recover well back down into NC because E. Fork from 276 to the Cabins is mostly uphill. For about .25 miles it avgs 12%.
