Hi @Jessica925 - Welcome to the community! 

Northern Georgia is such a beautiful place! I have gone on climbing trips in Walker County and am always impressed. My suggestion for a beautiful trail to backpack on in the area would be the Woody Gap to Blood Mountain section of the Appalachian Trail. 

This online community is a great place for beginners to learn a lot about tons of different outdoor activities. The North Georgia, Backpacking, Hiking and Appalachian Trail Hikers pages have lots of conversations that might be of interest to you and would be great places for you to post any additional questions you have as well. 

Our Expertise Advice article What to Bring on a Backpacking Trip may also be helpful to read over.

Once again, welcome to the community! We're glad to have you here.
