To reach Mtirala National Park we chose a driver from the local app GoTrip. It cost 73 Lari (28 $). By the urge of the driver, we arrived at about 11-00 am because when you are early you will have inconvenience for a walk after a previous rainy day. The road took about more than 40 minutes. I assure you that in more than half part of your drive, you derive pleasure from observing sightseeing of green nature of Batumi.
For entrance to Park, you need to pay a certain small amount of fee. Then, after entrance, you will have to use the bridge that has a helm that you need to spin for cross a river. When we hreached the other side of the bridge we have to choose the long way or the short way to see the important sightseeings of the park. After getting there, we had bothered that we can't go there it independently, we expected someone who could lead us there. Thanks for God, we found and joined to tour group from Slovakia with their tour guide who showed us the path to reaching the waterfall. We went after them from the long path. And reached to waterfall by going up about 3.6 km as was shown in the plates with information. It was uneasy because the route was slippery and the humidity was very high (suggest getting water).
But the inspiration after reaching a location with a waterfall despite the difficulties in ascending, was unforgettable. You will feel pleasure from watching the beauty of the waterfall and its fresh water breeze. So we got a couple of pictures and went down to see the lake which was more beautiful.
At the end I will tell that the inspiration getting from the coming to Mtirala was perfect and it is deserve to be visited. Here you will find adventure, a new acquintance and knowledge about the nature of local Batumi.

There is an official website, only google does not find it:

A nice 1 day trip, go to Chakvi, then take a taxi to Chakvistavi, 11km/1hour, road is very bad. Stop on the way and collect walnuts (in September). One should not collect anything in the park. Let the taxi wait for 3-4 hours and walk the marked path.

The park is more than an hour from Batumi, you can take bus 41 but it will take you to the nearest place to the park which is 8 km away from the park, then you take a taxi and negotiate the price, we took it for 30 Gal. At the visitor center they'll try to convince you to hire a guide, NO NEED, you have 2 main things to see in the park; the lake 2 km and the waterfall 3.5km, both on the same way, we walked to both of them and went back in 3:30 hours, the terrain is not hard you don't have to be fit, but they both are worth to see.

If you're into nature and in Batumi this is a great half-day trip.

We paid a taxi driver 30 GEL from central Batumi to the park, he didn't realize how far it was (or that the last 30 minutes is all dirt roads) so we gave him another 10 GEL when we finally got there.

There's one very short loop inside the park that's about 3k's and a longer 14k loop. This park is in the most humid place in the Caucuses and I literally have never sweated as much as I did on this trek. We decided to hike all the way to the spring because we wanted a longer hike but the spring was almost dry and it wasn't really worth it.

That said, the waterfall is really beautiful and you can get into the pool and also crawl behind the waterfall where the water will no longer hit you. I would suggest hanging out there for a while and then going on to the lake where there's a picnic area and you can swim and play on the rocks. The 3k loop will allow you to see the highlights and I would skip the rest of the trail because it's mostly just walking straight up the mountain in intense heat/humidity without much to see.

The visitor center can also organize you a taxi to get back to Batumi. If you're short on cash you can get a marshutka to/from Chakvi and then a taxi to/from there to the park which should save you 10-20 GEL each way.

There's a number of natural wonders around Batumi, but if you are short of time (most picturesque, mountain part of Adjara region is in a few hours ride) - I would definitely recommend you to visit Mtirala. There's a number of tracks available - starting from the easy ones (you can complete in about two hours or less (roundtrip) from Mtirala visitor center; although it's pretty short, you would still be rewarded by small waterfall and a mountain lake), ending up with two days trip around Mtirala mountain; all official routes are well described on a board near a tourist center. There are lesser known routes, for the daring ones - one of them (~7 hours to complete) starts near raptor watching point and was used to evacuate the plane, which crashed on top of Mtirala; this route is less picturesque (except numerous waterfalls and Batumi lookouts on the way) but at the top you would be rewarded by an abandoned village and military objects, covered in mist - nice spot to shoot some horror movies). Sorry for being captain obvious, but don't forget to wear hiking shoes or at least a comfortable sneakers (frequently seeing some trail conquerors in flip-flops - they look not too happy) and bring enough water (1L per person for a shortest route would be a good estimate) with you. And the last one - since Mtirala is one of the wettest places in Europe, it's not the worst idea to have some light raincoat with you, just in case.

This is a hidden gem in the region. Mainly served by group tour operators and taxi drivers, which I was trying to avoid, so I walked from Chakvi in the direction of the park, hitched a ride after 5 minutes which took me to the bottom of the park entrance, from there it was about 4km to the visitor centre. Very hilly, completely covered in leafy forest with a pictoresque river running through. I had a beautiful time there, healing nature, and not seeing a soul in mid May as I somehow managed to get the timing right so all the tour groups were gone too. It is quite steep and the path is going up and down so some level of fitness is required. The park entrance was free and well signed once inside on the small circuit which I did. There is a 1 lari cable crossing over the river which is fun and lasts about 20 seconds but worth the experience. The waterfall is stunning and the mini lake too. Overall the whole trip took about 6 hours including the long walk to the park and back. It was the highlight of my trip through Georgia / Armenia and would come back to explore the further reaches of the park.

Minibus from Chakvi to Chakvistavi operates once a day on Monday and Friday, in summer everyday. In Chakvistavi there is a visitors' centre. See the exhibition, rent the keys from tourist shelter and go up there to stay overnight. The second day go down through a beech forest with rhododendrons, see the waterfall and get back through the chestnut valley. In Chakvistavi, there is also restaurant and possibilities of accomodation. Be prepared for rain, for which this area is known.

The National Park is about 25 kms outside Batumi, one of the most popular tourist spots for foreigners in the Ajara Region (Colchis) covering an area of 16.ooo hectars; it is called the wettest location in Georgia; rare species of animals and plants. Marked hihing Trails however is reco9mmended to visit the park Administration for detailed Information,
regulations and personal security. No entrance fees. The last part of the road however is "rural", pictures views of an almost untouched nature.
