$\ln(\sqrt{2} + 1)$
$y = \ln{(\sec x)}$ then $dy/dx = \frac{\sec x \tan x}{\sec x} = \tan x$ and $1+(dy/dx)^{2} = 1+\tan^{2} x = \sec^{2} x$ So $L = \int^{\frac{\pi}{4}}_{0} |\sec x| dx = \int^{\frac{\pi}{4}}_{0}\sec x dx = [\ln{(\sec x + \tan x)}]^{\frac{\pi}{4}}_{0} = \ln(\sqrt{2} + 1) - \ln(1+0) = \ln(\sqrt{2} + 1)$
