    I've never been to Piropiro, but I have been curious about the place. With the lodge near does it make for a bit of a hot spot with mountain bikers and trail riders? Can you get a quad onto some of the tracks to get far away from the main camp?

    Campsite is usually busy so pays to hunt away from the flats quad bike can be handy for getting around to better spots to access on foot
