In 2.22 All Hell Breaks Loose: Part Two, the Winchesters along with Bobby and Ellen discover that Samuel Colt built a huge Devil's trap which is 100 miles across, in southern Wyoming. There is a church at each point and the sides of the pentacle are made of iron railroad lines. At the center, in an old cowboy cemetery, is a Devil's Gate - a literal door to hell.

The Yellow-Eyed Demon plans to open the Gate and use beings from Hell as soldiers . As the devil's trap prevents the Yellow-Eyed Demon from getting to the Devil's Gate, he uses Jake Talley to cross into it and unlock the Gate, which he does using the Colt as the key. Hundreds of beings, including demons, escape from Hell before Bobby and Ellen manage to close it. When the door is open the blast of energy lights up the surrounding railways and blows up at least one of the churches, which significantly weakens the Devils Trap and allows the Yellow-Eyed Demon to enter. John Winchester is among those to escape through the gate, and he helps Dean kill the Yellow-Eyed Demonby shooting him with the colt. John then disappears, but not before sharing an emotional moment with his sons.

In 3.01 The Magnificent Seven, we learn that the night the gate was opened, strange dark clouds appeared over 17 cities. We also learn from Isaac that Sam and Dean are being blamed for the Devil's Gate being opened and the demons escaping.

There is a rock formation called the Devil's Gate in Wyoming. It is a gorge formed by the Sweetwater River and was a landmark for pioneers following the Mormon trail and the Oregon Trail.
