Parson History

Parson is named after Henry George Parson, a merchant who was a resident of Golden. He moved to Canada in 1883 and lived in Ottawa for 2 years, then he moved to Banff and finally settled in Golden. Parson was elected to parliament and served the Columbia region from 1907 to 1912. The construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway resulted in the growth of the Columbia Valley region in terms of trade and population. In the early 1990s, the region experienced a tourism boom as many people were attracted by the unexplored peaks, lakes and wilderness.

Golf

Golden golf course is the nearest golf course situated a few minutes north of Golden Town. With a backdrop of the Rockies and Purcell mountain ranges, golfers get to enjoy a round of golf while taking in the breathtaking views of the peaks, landscape and the nearby Columbia River. The 18-hole, 6,778-yard championship course also features a driving range and RV park. 

Hiking

The Parson area offers plenty of nature trails that lead to areas with spectacular views of the mountains and lakes. Silent Pass Trail is a relatively easy hike that stretches for about 4.6km and leads to McMurdo Hut and Silent Lake on Silent Mountain. The trails around Silent Lake offer breathtaking views of the peaks on the west side of the Duncan River, including the Battle Group and Schooner Ridge. You can access the trail via Spillimacheen FSR and McMurdo Creek FSR. There are two huts in the area, but you will have to contact Columbia Valley Hut Society if you would like to book either of them.

Fishing 

Living in Parson means you don't have to go far to fish. The Columbia River borders the area to the west and offers a chance to catch char, lingcod, kokanee and rainbow trout. For a different experience, you can hike through the area to find some great alpine lakes to fish on. A few minutes away north of Golden, Kinbasket Lake features rainbow, bull trout, whitefish, and kokanee. Other nearby lakes great for fishing include Wilbur Lake, Cedar Lake, Mitten Lake and Susan Lake.
