Moderately difficult trek. Trail is clean and litter free.
Remember to carry enough water and snacks as there are no vendors after the first 200 m. The canteen run by ladies, right after you enter the bird sanctuary gate is highly recommended - esp the poha and vada pav.
No washrooms on the way either. So make the most of the washroom available right at the entrance.
Wear excellent shoes. It's quite warm throughout the year, with little tree cover on the way. So no need to carry jackets, even in winter.
The final leg, at the fort itself, does seem daunting. But it's worth it. Find a spot and sit down for a few moments of calm, eating your snacks and clicking some gorgeous pics

we thought to visit this fort to bring in the new year but say a huge crowd without any covid safety protocols - so left

On our first trip after Covid, on the way to Alibag we stopped by the Karnala bird sanctuary. We expected it to be shut due to Covid, but it wasn’t. The bird sanctuary has a lot of different trekking routes that go through the park. We didn’t spot any birds as such except the occasional chirping sounds and a few cages with parrots, peacock, kite,etc
The Karnala fort trek as the name suggests leads up to Karnala fort. I would grade the difficulty level as moderate as it is a steep climb up over the hill. It is about 2.5-3km one way and takes about 1 1/2 -2hrs to reach the top. Make sure you carry enough water with you.The path takes you amidst nature and the views from the top are refreshing. The fort was ruled by the British, Marathas and the Mughals at various times.
There is a canteen at the base in the sanctuary which provides decent Maharashtrian snacks and lunch. You can ask them to prepare some lemonade for your hike... trust me you will need it!

It has the same main entrance from the Karnala Bird Sanctuary and is closed due to Covid.

We drove as no information was available online.

Tip: The exit to the Karnala Fort is a side exit on the left, there is no signage so put on Maps and then take the exit. We overshot and had to reverse.
