Help with hiking goal!!!

Hello everybody! I am brand new to this group and fairly new to hiking. I have always been a casual hiker but last year I completed some summits and really got the bug! I turn 40 this October (ouch) and a goal I have is to climb Mt. Washington in my 40th year! So my question is this... I am looking for a list of trails/peaks that I can do on weekends that will increase in difficulty and build my hiking skills. I am hoping to do Washington August of 2018... Are there any guides or lists already out there or does anyone on here have any suggestions? I live about an hour from the Whites so I have easy access to the area! Thanks so much!!!
