ALG-592, Needles Arch, Youf-Ehakit Area. 5 meter height (estimated). From the Oued Tin-Tarabine and ALG-294 (Elephant Rock), drive north on the sandy tracks (very sandy in some spots) for 15 minutes or much more (depending on the abilities of your driver) to the foot of the rocky hill and the end of the tracks. From here, take the cairned trail which climbs up in 45 minutes to the spectacular Needles of Youf-Ehakit (visible majestically from the Oued Tin-Tarabine). The arch is located in the first set of these needles.
