swimming in the river (finding hot springs)

I would like to swim in the river in Glenwood. How do I find the natural hot springs in the river? I know a lot of the locals know where the spots are. Also, where are the good hiking trails? Thanks

Sorry, wish I knew. I don't think I'd want to just swim in the Colorado River. Maybe take a full day raft trip or tubing.

The springs are in a lazy gentle part of the river across from the Glenwood Hot Springs Resort. You can see them across the river. Last time I floated by they were a little sulfuric smelling and pretty crowded - however they are sizable. I would go during the week to avoid weekend crowds. They are on the railroad side of the river - looks like there is a place you can park and walk down to them. You can jump over the rocks and into the river there - very flat. Have Fun!
