I walk a lot & don't log the hour walking I do every morning with my dogs since I have light exercise down already, but I do log walking I do beyond that & it seems too high calories burned-wise to me but I don't have much experience with burning calories

    I estimate 200 cal/hour ... when I choose one of the slow-moderate walking paces in MFP, MFP gives me about 190 cal/hour.

    So ... pretty accurate, IF I choose one of the slow-moderate walking paces.

    On flat ground you're probably burning around 1/3 your body weight in pounds (but calories) per mile. More going up hill.

    Neither do I.
