Look for the "San Diego County Backcountry" map. You can find it at most Sports Authority stores, some Big 5 Sporting goods, REI carries it and almost every store in the desert area. It has a brown cover.
Also grab a copy of the "San Diego Desert Region" map, available at the same places, has a greenish cover. Both good maps but you should get both as they have different trails on them. Look around too Lowell Lindsay's book of the same name. Public libraries have them, eBay too.
Speaking of books, look for Jerry Schad's excellent book and/or CD, Afoot and Afield in San Diego
Along with JustRuns
there's lots of good folks doing desert runs here:
JeepForum San Diego
They are going to be running Rodriguez/Oroflamme Canyon, The Squeeze and Heart Attack Hill this Sunday (11-7)
