If you drive thru Jasper National Park, by all means take the small detour over to the Athabasca Falls. You will never forgive yourself if you don't. They are very impressive, and the park has done a wonderful job of providing great concrete walkways on both sides of the falls. Yes it's very safe! Do take the time to visit. You can also use the parking lot their for a jumping off place for nice hikes too.
