Enter the total distance and the total elevation into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Hiking Time.

## Hiking Time Formula

HT = 19.5*D + 30*E/1000

Variables:

- HT is the Hiking Time (minutes)
- D (miles) is the total distance
- E (ft) is the total elevation

To calculate Hiking Time, multiply the distance in miles by 19.5, then add 30 times the elevation over 1000.

## How to Calculate Hiking Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Hiking Time.

- First, determine the total distance.
- Next, determine the total elevation.
- Next, gather the formula from above = HT = 19.5*D + 30*E/1000.
- Finally, calculate the Hiking Time.
- 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 = 5

total elevation = 10000
