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.

So I just went on an AWESOME hike over at Snoqualmie falls...it 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?
Each day I am grateful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that turned into reality and likes that turned into love.
