The trail is an easy hike to the hot springs which are some of the best I've visited. Park in the Mad Creek trail head lot, there is a map posted there showing the HS trail. It's a narrow trail, not very scenic but good option instead of driving up. We made it in about 75 minutes. Lightweight pants would have been nice but not necessary.
As for the springs, go early like right at open if want a chair but either way go. I've visited a dozen springs in colorado and these are some of the nicest.
