Interesting Facts

Hiking is good exercise, but not a great way to burn off calories.

 Body Weight (lbs)  Calories burned per mile (at 3 mph)
 120  108
 160  144
 200  180

Our average hike is about 6.7 miles, or about 965 calories (for a 160 lb person).  So an afternoon of hiking will offset which of your favorite vices???

Choose your vice:
