My personal Experience and A Step By Step guide for you:
I started my journey from Bhayander station by boarding 05:57 AM train to Dahanu Road and alighted at Boisar station and straight away headed to the bus stand to reach Warangade village. You can enquire about your place of interest with bus transportation staff. On asking, I was guided to a bus going towards Kalyan. The journey was of about 30 minutes.
Reaching Warangade I went on a road beside a telecom network tower after about 20 minutes of walking I saw a shop where I inquired about the route and then proceeded further. From there going straight for about 10 minutes, you will come across a small canal type stream to the right and cross it from the first small bridge you spot.
The fort is on to left hand and on the trail you will cross two small mountains and then through a dense forest offering a pleasant walk. After about 1 hour of walking, I reached the top and explored the fort and returned back after having a peaceful trek.
To sum up the cost of trek:
Bhayander to Boisar station return ticket (Indian Railway) = Rs. 40.
Took paratha’s (Home made) : Rs 0.
Boisar to Warangade (Public bus transport ) : Rs. 07.
Warangade to Boisar (Public bus transport ) : Rs. 07.
So the total expense of the trek was Rs. 54.
