1) This is a map we highly recommend:  - MAP -

2) Another great resource is the Smoky Mountains Friends Group: http://www.friendsofthesmokies.org/

3) And you can download a copy of the park's trail map at this page from the NPS (though it is not as detailed as the map above).

4) Finally, for all the latest happenings in the park click here.

Have a great trip!

I can answer part of your question.  Park somewhere in Yosemite Valley and take the shuttle to the trail head (or walk there).  Make sure that you have a permit to hike Half Dome (Friday - Sunday, and holidays).

 

These might help:

The NPS is continuing their extremely popular free admission program, so mark your calendars. On June 5th and June 6th, more than 100 parks will waive their entrance fees, so you’ll have no excuse not to go visit. What will you do with the extra money? We’re thinking about ...

Not for kayaking. You need a permit for a motorized vehicle.

Boat launching ramps are available on Bowman and McDonald Lakes on the west side of Glacier, as well as Swiftcurrent, Two Medicine, and St. Mary Lakes on the east side of the park.

Canoes or rafts can be carried to many smaller waters.

Hand-propelled boats and sailboats are permitted on park waters with the following exception: from April 1 through September 30, the section of Upper McDonald Creek between Mineral Creek and Lake McDonald is closed to all types of boating and floating to protect nesting Harlequin ducks.

You must get the permits with the NRRS. Permits are not available in the park or on a first-come, first-served basis. Demand for permits will be very high; availability may last only a matter of minutes on the first day permits become available. Each permit has a service fee of $1.50 (which covers the cost of NRRS processing the permit; Yosemite does not receive any money).

The gate and roads are open 24/7 all year long. Obviously, the shuttles, shops, restaurants and lodging are subject to normal business hours though, so arriving late at night might leave you with little to do.
