I was at a children's park last weekend and wandered upon a tile maze that allows right turns only.

The path is white. The walls are gray. S = start and F = finish.

Can you figure it out?

    $\begingroup$ I assume that standing in place and making three right turns, such that the net effect is a left turn, would be disallowed? :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @bobble I wouldn't recommend that answer for deletion, but instead i would enjoy seeing the downvotes pile up on it for being outside the spirit of the question. And as a rule, I don't downvote, but others are not so kind. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @WoomyRogue There is no trickery in the wording here. It's not a riddle. Go with what you think is clearly intended. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ one strategy, start from F and make left (anti-clockwise) turns until you reach S $\endgroup$

Here is one possible solution:

My method is

going from F to S, making only left turns. Whenever a route repeats itself (in the same direction), it must be wrong.
