How many calories you burn definitely depends on how much you weigh, which is taken into account when calculating the calories burned. As you lose weight, it would burn less calories to complete the same hike. For example, a person weighing around 150 would burn around 400 calories for a 60 minute cross-country hike.

Coach Jen, does that sound accurate to you? 800 cals for an hour of straight walking up hills?

I saw that, but it said I burned something like 800 calories, which just seemed off to me. Maybe it's because I'm 298 lbs? Idk...

I think there is a entry along the lines of "hiking: cross country".

So I just went on an AWESOME hike over at Snoqualmie was about a half hour straight down this massive spiralling hill down to the river, and an hour back up. Question is, how do I track that? The first half hour was basically the same strenuousness for me as walking 2 mph, but going back up, it was uphill the WHOLE way. It took an hour to get back up...but I can't seem to find an option for walking up hills in the calorie tracker. Any advice?
