    It all depends on your weight and effort (hear rate or watts).

    Going up will be with more effort (higher HR), going down will be lower effort, unless you are using a HR monitor and keep it at the same level. Anyway, I'd say roughly 250-450 calories per hour.

    What do you do at the gym? I assume your motivation to go up and down the hill is to burn calories. If that's the case, I don't think the hill is necessary at all. I think you'll probably burn the same calories if you walk on the flat somewhere.
