Welcome! We have several members from that area who, I hope, will come on and answer specific questions. In the meantime, despite its name, caltopo.com is a nationwide source for topographic maps and might be a good place to start. Being a West Coaster, though, I haven't investigated its eastern US maps.
And, of course, a weekend trip close to home might be a good way to get back into backpacking more gradually.
