See the falls. Hike to the base of Lower Yosemite Falls (1/2 mile), see Mirror Lake (1 mile), and Vernal and Nevada Falls (several miles--a half day or all day, respectively). Also, hike along the north side and south side trails running east-west along the Yosemite Valley.

If you want longer hikes, hike to the top of Yosemite Falls. I also recommend the Four Mile Trail to Glacier Point, except in April it's probably closed by snow and ice.

Here's a good hiking map, with the more-popular hikes explained:
