You will have to start removing anything that is on that circuit to try to find the short. This will include any switches, receptacles, or light fixtures.

Hi, although not easy, try to figure the middle of the circuit and open a receptacle and remove the conductors from it , turn the breaker on and see what happens, continue until you find the problem.
