Enter at the S, and end at the E, collecting 100 points along the way. You may not enter the same corridor more than once.

Every step in the maze is worth 1 point.  When a step intersects a number X, you also collect X points.  So the path through the maze is:

    |Ec|
+---+ b+-+-----+
|ghijka        |
+f +-+   +--+  |
|ed| |   |  |  |
+bc+-+   +--+  |
|akji|53 |ba61 |
+-+gh+---+ck---+
|  fedcbaedji  |
|  +--+jkf+gh+-+
|     |ihg|fedc|
+---  +-+-+hi0b|
|34   gh| |gjka|
+  -+-fi+-+fe+-+
|   |dejkabcd  |
+---+cb+-------+
    |Sa|
S-to-a is the 1st step and a-to-b is 2nd step ...
k-to-a is another step ...
c-to-E is the final (70th) step.
Adding the numbers that crossed the path,
70+1+3+9+5+8+1+2+1=100.
