In Mtirala National Park there are two hiking trails of different degrees of complexity:

Trail № 1 „Tsalbnari
Type of the route: hiking

Season:  May-October
Length of the circular route: 7 km
Height above sea level: 260 - 445 m
Degree of complexity: simple 

The circular route "Tsalbnari" starts from the Visitor Centre and goes to the gorge of the Chakvistskali River. At the beginning of the route you will find a mechanical cable car, which will take you to the other side of the river. Then you can continue your way to the waterfall. This stretch of the trail is covered with the rhododendron shrubs that magnificently bloom in the spring. After walking 1,5 km, you will come to the zipline, where extreme lovers can enjoy descending the zipline rope between evergreen tree crowns. A few meters from the zipline the road is divided into two directions: if you are going to visit only the lake, then turn left, and if you also want to see the waterfall, turn right, and after 1.5 km you will find yourself at a 15-meter waterfall. After walking 1 km back from the waterfall, you will get to the small beautiful lake. Here you can stop for a picnic in a place specially adapted for this purpose and have a swim.

Trail № 2 "Tsivtskaro"
Type of the route: hiking
Duration: 2 days
Season:  June - September
Lenght of the circular route: 16 km
Height above sea level: 260-1250
Degree of complexity: medium

In comparison with the "Tsalbnari" trail, the "Tsivtskaro" trail is more complicated and is designed for lovers of long-distance hiking. The two-day route starts from the center of the visitor center and ends at an altitude more than 1250 m above sea level. At the beginning of the route you will need to cross the broadleaf Colchis forest. In addition to a diverse flora, along the route you can also meet representatives of the local fauna: brown bear, roe deer, marten and chamois. Natural springs with crystal-clear water are often found on the way.

On the 9th kilometer of the route there is a tourist shelter for 8 people. There are also places for picnic and fire. The last stretch of the trail is covered by 70% of beech forest.

Since "Tsivtskaro" trail is relatively difficult, it is recommended that you take a guide or ranger with you.
