The Merry Monster leaves Mendocino College, but then heads east and north into Redwood Valley, making a loop around the valley, past many vineyards and farm lands and country homes. The vistas are beautiful. You'll return to Mendocino College on a different route to complete your loop. The Merry Monster is 25.4 miles long and has 750 ft of climbing.
