Here is the definition from my Merriam'Webster dictionary:

1 a : a place constructed of or full of intricate passageways and blind alleys
b : a maze (as in a garden) formed by paths separated by high hedges

2 : something extremely complex or tortuous in structure, arrangement, or 
character : intricacy, perplexity
<a labyrinth of swamps and channels>
<guided them through the labyrinths of city life — Paul Blanshard>

3 : a tortuous anatomical structure; especially : the internal ear or 
its bony or membranous part

Something with only one possible route isn't complex in structure.
