The most direct route is through the park to the 93 and into Kootenay NP. Then 95 (BC and USA) all the way south. This all major highways. As for hot springs, there's Radium HS and Fairmount

According to Google Maps the entire route is only 6-7 hrs. Radium to Fairmount is only 25 minutes.

There are Canadian Nat Park campgrounds and BC Provincial Parks along the way.

A modest alternative near Cranbrook is Kimberley, a Bavarian styled tourist town and ski resort.

Also, Moyie Lake Provincial Park, a bit south of Cranbrook, is a lovely place to camp if you want to be out of the cities.
Gives you a good place to get your rig in order for the border, a few miles further down.
