Hiking Calorie Calculator

Hiking is a great way to burn calories. The following calculator will estimate the number of calories burnt while hiking. Please bear in mind that this is only a general estimation of calories burnt, which I’ve adapted from the original military pandolf equation. In reality, the actual calories burnt will vary from person to person. For myself, I have found it useful to get an idea of my energy expenditure and particularly when deciding how much food to bring when planning multi-day expeditions.
