Reference your comment "One would have to establish either precedent or need, and neither seems likely from what I've read here, notwithstanding some interesting ADA arguments."
When the so called desert protection act passed in 1994, Congress signed off on a cherry stem up Surprise Canyon. Congress dictated that the road shall be left open for vehicular access.
Also, there is a need for the road to be left open. Closing the road discriminates against the disabled and aged who cannot hike up to Panamint city.
