Where in the NE US can a new backpacker get his backpacking wings?

I have decided to spend my (non-hypothetical) vacation backpacking alone for the week, in the mid-atlantic or northeastern US. However, I am not sure where is best for me to do this, as I have a number of minor concerns and have not done extended backpack travel on a schedule like this -- at least not as a civilian. Specific concerns follow, and overlap somewhat, so apologies for that. [more inside]

However, the concern is about the weather. The plan is to go late April/early May however, we do not fancy hiking in the rain. Is this timeframe a bad idea?

TANAP w/o a guide?

Hiking map of Baxter State Park and Mt. Katahdin

I'm having trouble finding a decent hiking map of Baxter State Park in Maine, and more specifically the area around Mt. Katahdin. The map on their website is all but useless. I'd like to be able to figure out where the parking lots are and how long and how tough the different trails are. I can't even tell where the peak or the Knife Edge are! I've tried to find books at my local library, but they've all been out. I know there's some decent maps at the visitor center, but it's a 9 hour drive to get there, and I want to plan my hike and figure out which campsite to reserve before I'm on the park grounds.
