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.

From Marsden Railway Station the walk travels along the north side of the Colne Valley from Marsden to March Haigh reservoir returning via Willykay Clough to Eastergate. The route then returns to Tunnel End before crossing Manchester Road, after a short climb the rote follows the contours to Intake Head Farm, Old Mount road and past the Butterley Slipway back to Marsden.
The terrain consists of steady climbs and descents and can be muddy underfoot so stout footwear needed with a few stiles.
Finish at the Riverhead Pub in Marsden.
