On Snow Leopard you could "jump" from the last space to the first space by hitting cmd+right arrow.
How to do this in Mavericks?

I haven't tried it, but the app TotalSpaces2 seems to provide this feature:
In newer versions of macOS they require you to disable SIP when installing.
They don't cycle any more, last to first.
I've found the best solution is to assign a key command to every Space you use & go directly to the one you want.
I use Ctrl/number.
Additional irritation is that Fullscreen apps insert themselves into the 'list' of Spaces, but cannot be called directly.
To accommodate for not cycling anymore, you can enter a command for Switch to Desktop 1, i.e. ⌘+shift+→.
