The jade vine maze was released in October 2007, along with the Back to my Roots quest. It is located just east of Shilo Village. The maze is heavily featured in the Back to my Roots quest, and the follow-up miniquest, Returning Clarence. Access to the maze is unlocked during the Back to my Roots quest, and completion of the quest is required in order to use the eagle transport system to access the maze.
Some modes of transportation are:
- Eagle transport system
- Shilo Village - walk east from Shilo Village, take the Agility shortcut to the north, walk further north and take another Agility shortcut to the west, and finally walk south to the maze.
- Abyss - get to the Nature altar through the Abyss, exit the altar, and walk south-east to the maze. (You can also use a teleport tablet to get to the nature altar.)
- Charter ship to the Ship yard
- Gnome glider to Gandius - south of the Ship yard
- Tai Bwo Wannai teleport and then running south-east from the village.
- Witchdoctor mask or Juju teleport spiritbag to teleport to the Herblore Habitat, walk west, take the Agility shortcut to the north, walk further north and take another Agility shortcut to the west, and finally walk south to the maze.

- The maze has a number of navigational options:
- Enter hole
- Enter vine
- Climb up/down vine
- Cut/squeeze/crawl through vines - cutting the vines will require a machete
- Swing-on vine
- There is an eagle in the jade vine maze, which is part of the eagle transport system from the Eagles' Peak quest. Using a rope on this eagle will unlock this destination.
- If you fall within the maze (i.e. at the eagle platform, or while swinging the vine), you will stumble upon a hole (which resembles a tree stump) nearby that you can enter. This will take you to another random point within the maze.
