Dolphmania is hidden in Balcones District Park on the corner of Amherst and Duval Rd. in NW Austin.
The entrance to the parking lot is located on Amherst. Park and head towards the sidewalk bordering the park on Amherst. Head north on the Amherst sidewalk until you see the trailhead. You will pass a drainage area with rocks and there are some wooden posts and a chain marking the trailhead. Take the wide trail east. You will see a small clearing as the trail curves to the left. Keep following the trail. It will become rocky. Go down a hill, down another hill and up a hill. You will come upon a meadow. Cross the meadow and head towards the large boulders. You will see a small trail headed downhill behind the first set of boulders. Take the tree root stairway about halfway down. You will encounter an oak tree on the trail to your left with a root that crosses the trail. Look to your right for a giant oak tree just off the trail. Dolphmania is sleeping nestled in a bed of rocks at it's base.
Be sure to tuck it in when you are done.
Another treasure, Pet Land, is hidden on the other side of the meadow. In this park, you will also find Balcones Dino, Taiwan and Bally on another trail.
