Default Thompson + Cariboo Mntns PPs

I am curious about these provincial parks.
Have not found anything in the 3 big hiking references: Graeme Pole, Patton & Robinson, Don't Waste Your Time.
Garry Edwards's Hiking the Cariboo Goldfields is now only US $1,012.90 (plus $3.99 shipping) on Amazon.
A couple of YouTube videos mention hikes around ski club huts.
It looks as though these provincial parks are either much less frequently used than, say, trails around Jasper or are less amenable to day hikes or moderate backpacks (or maybe they are not part of "Canadian Rockies"?).
If anyone can point to some hiking sources, I'd be grateful.

Thanks!

Not sure what you mean by Thompson PP... but neither is in the Rockies. I've explored Cariboo Mtn PP just a bit. It's very remote with little in the way of developed trails. And it's currently closed due to Covid. There's a ski hut on Cariboo Mtn near Quesnel, but that's not in any PP, and definitely not worth driving from Chicago for!
