"Hell's Gate" is also the area coming in on the road from Beatty. The road splits where you can go down the 'Beatty Cut-off' to Furnace Creek or go straight if you want to go to Stovepipe. There's a picnic area there with a sign that says "Hell's Gate". When I was in the Park Service there we sometimes referred to it as "DEVA".
