Walking on the meadows destroys them. Always use the trail or boardwalk and pay attention to the signboards that that ask visitors to keep away from areas of revegetation.
You can do a strenuous dayhike all the way to the top of Upper Yosemite falls from the 'backpacker's walk-in campground'. After another mile, you will reach Yosemite Point. Vistas of the valley are beautiful from various points on the trail and from Yosemite Point. Yosemite Point is located across the valley from Glacier Point at about the same elevation.
A great hike would be to take a bus from Yosemite lodge to Glacier Point. You will pay for a tour, but you have to tell the driver that you will not be using the bus for your return trip.
Once you reach Glacier Point, replenish your water supply, food and snacks and hike down the Panorama trail. It is a 8-mile walk to the valley. This is arguably the most beautiful trail in the entire valley.
Once the trail leaves Glacier Point, it is downhill all the way to Illiloutte Falls. There is a bridge that crosses the canyon and you get to see some beautiful cascades in early and middle summer. After crossing the canyon, the trail goes uphill for a while and goes downhill all the way to the top of Nevada falls. It meets up with John Muir trail just before reaching Nevada falls. Thereafter, take the Mist trail down to the valley (via vernal falls).
