What part of the park are you intending to visit?

Any of the trails in and around Tuolumne Meadows are scenic. All of the trails climbing out of Yosemite Valley are steep and scenic. The trails on the valley floor itself are under-used and scenic, and mostly easy. You really cannot go wrong there. If you want sequoias to hike in there are two groves - Mariposa Grove is the larger of the two and is re-opening after several years of work on the trails there. Well worth a day of walking around in the grove.

In addition to AlmostThere's questions, when are you planning on going, what do you want to focus on seeing, and what kind of daily mileage/exertion level are you looking for?

We can recommend anything from a gentle stroll to a brutal hike with a little more info.

Also, are we talking about backpacking or day hiking? I assumed day hiking, but backpacking involves a wilderness permit which can be difficult to get in summer.
