: I did not go there as it turns out, but am making a third trip next month and may decide to check it out.

: Is it a worthwhile hike if I choose to do so?

I don't know anything about getting a key to open the gate, but that takes away the anticipation and satisfaction of arriving at the 'town'. Now that I think about it, I do remember being passed by a vehicle or two. However you get there, it will be worth it! Be sure to post a follow up if you go.
