Having once gone by the moniker High Trek Adventure, CitySolve has received enthusiastic reviews. Though there aren't online reviews for the Salt Lake City race in particular, five Yelpers gave High Trek a 4.5-star average:
- I participated in the Seattle race and had an absolute blast! I live in Seattle and the challenge brought me to areas within the city that I've never even heard of before… – Matthew F.
- High Trek is the perfect mix of fun and competition. Its [sic] an ideal way to spend a day with your friends and to break the daily routine...about as much fun as I've ever had in a day. – Jim K.
