It wouldn't be the shortest, but the fastest way would be over Cumbres Pass and up the river.

A flow above 300 CFS here would be best:

The most direct route would be up FR 380 (Park Creek) to Summitville and over Stunner Pass to Platoro...last time we went we took FR 330 from near Del Norte up to Summitville...I doubt that either of these roads is open yet though.

I agree with cadster about the 300 minimum. Make sure you get the upper too...better rapids than the Pinnacle Gorge anyway.

Here is a little more info for you:
