Hi all, can someone tell me if I have 2 routers, both have connections on the back to different buildings and are in use, but we are using hsrp locally to the virtual address of the router. we have bgp providing routing between all tghe sites, if the traffic first hits the active router, will it automatically get routed to the other router for that paticular destination, so in effect its an extra hop ?

Yes it would work if the BGP has been setup properly (in terms of IBGP & EBGP peering)

you are right that it would be an extra hop if the active router sends the traffic to the standby router
