Powpow's map shows what I think is the best route in the area, IMHO. If you don't wanto to go quite so far, turn left on Fish Rock Road from the ridge line of Old Stage Road. At the beginng of the climb up Old Stage Road, the right turn onto Gualala Road to where it crosses the Gualala River (the bridge is obvious) is a pretty out-and-back diversion. I wouldn't go further than that on Gualala Road, though, as I have always been a tad nervous about the territoriality of pot growers.
A powpow's map shows, you could stay up on the ridge top pretty much all the way to Point Arena. I've never gone that far, but if the earlier parts of Old Stage Road are any indoication, it would be very pretty, if somewhat strenuous, ride.
