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.

I start this run in North Portland. Since I live there. The run is all pavement. The road is a little rough at the northern most due to a lot of patching but nothing to bad. It smooths out nicely. Lots of nice turns throughout the loop and beautful scenery. Don't forget to stop at the rest area when heading south towards Carson for a nice view of Mt. St. Helens.
