[edit] Hints

Hint One
    It's puzzles like this that make the Memo function so useful.

    Mark the directions you can move to from each square. Once you've marked it down, you'll probably notice that squares with two or more arrows on them really restrict your movement options, especially since you can't go back to your original square.

Hint Two
    OK, here's how to get to the fifth step in the correct path:

    From the starting square, go down, right, right, down, down.

Hint Three
    The only square that leads to the finishing square is the one right above it. The only square leading to that one is the one to the left of it. Since you can't get to that square from above or below it, you have to get there from the square to its left.

    If you think about it like this, you should have the correct path plotted out in no time!

Super Hint
    Here's how to get to the halfway point:

    From the starting square, Hint Two said to go down, right, right, down, down.

    From there, go left, left, down, down. You should now find yourself in the bottom-left square. It shouldn't be difficult to reach the goal from here.

    Interestingly, this puzzle doesn't use the upper-right squares at all.
