| A treasure hunt
Driving cattle through the region, Bill Boyd, Rand Brooks, and Andy Clyde pass a group of rocks called The Devil's Playground, good for absolutely nothing unless you're hiding stolen gold there. That's what Ned Young did and a lot of people are looking for it.

Including Elaine Riley who lies to Hoppy and the guys about her motives. But her lies a little fibs next to Robert Elliott playing a former judge who does not let people know he's an 'ex' and that he's a crook which is why he's an 'ex'.

This little treasure hunt with a few more participants ends up back at Devil's Canyon where the truth is sorted out and the good guys come out on top. Would it be any other way in a Hopalong Cassidy film?

The law in this case is absolutely useless, I suspect Joe Greene playing the sheriff will not be re-elected. Greene is hilarious as the fiddle-footed sheriff who will not let duty interrupt his poker game. Western perennial Earl Hodgins is his deputy who has some decent set of priorities.

Nice set of performances, the story could have been better told though.
