The gate helps protect the road from "Jeepers" pushing up the road in high clearance vehicles, getting stuck and then doing various sorts of engineering to retrieve stuck vehicles. Later in the spring as the road melts out, it will be soft and muddy. Without a gate, the road would get a lot of potholes and erosion from vehicles traveling it while it is saturated.
Given the overuse of the area, perhaps they should decomission the road beyond the gate.
