The island Malta was already settled probably 8000 years ago of Sicily. Still to 11,000 BC they was combined with the south Italian island. From the time by 5200 to 4600 BC there are the first lanes of human accomodations through cave finds. From 4600 BC are first dwellings and huts to be found and from about 3800 BC it began the Stone Age stage at Malta that left up to now impressive evidences which annual thousands of tourists allure. The megalith temples Mnjadra and Hagar Qim as soon as the Hypogaeum in the city Paola are the main attractions of the island from this time. Ceramic finds, artistic reliefs and paintings as soon as the famous "sleeping lady" show the amazing artistic work of the inhabitants of this period. From about 2500 BC this stage would end and the inhabitants left the island.

In several areas of the island of Malta, and the nearby island of Gozo, there are intricate networks of parallel tracks carved into the limestone rock which seem artificial origin. They are called "cart ruts".

People of this region had mazes that they walked. So a maze aspect wouldn't surprise me.
But your idea seems to be akin to a rail type system. That, too, seem possible. I am not familiar with what the insides of the grooves look like. Do they retain any cut marks? Or are they all wear marks? Any nail type holes or anything?
What about your prior idea of fire....could there have been lantern type things illuminating path?
