Enter the total distance (miles) and the total time (days) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Hiking Rate. 

Hiking Rate Formula

HIKR = D / T


  • HKR is the Hiking Rate (miles/day)
  • D is the total distance (miles)
  • T is the total time (days)

To calculate the Hiking Rate, divide the total distance by the total time.

How to Calculate a Hiking Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Hiking Rate.

  1. First, determine the total distance (miles). 
  2. Next, determine the total time (days). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = HIKR = D / T.
  4. Finally, calculate the Hiking Rate.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total distance (miles) = 500

total time (days) = 30
