Under Cal. Civil Code 2941(b)(3), a title company can, at your direction, prepare and record a release of the deed of trust, if more than 75 days passes from the time that reconveyance from the original beneficiary of the deed of trust is requested by the borrower.
That's the out-of-court method. If you can't find a title company to prepare the release, then you would have to file a "quiet title" lawsuit and prove to the court that the original debt secured by the deed of trust has been paid in full.
