A number of posters, especially newer folks requesting trip information, neglect to give enough or any information about their level of experience and/or the kind of trip they are looking for.
It would make things easier, and especially safer, if you would please supply us with the adequate information. Therefore our recommendation would be based on your abilities, and experience, not on uninformed guess work.
What level of backpacking experience do you have?
Level 1- Minimal hiking
Level 2- Some backpacking trips, using trails
Level 3- Numerous backpacking trips, some x-country travel
Level 4- Comfortable with trail and/or x-country travel
What terrain are you comfortable/uncomfortable with?
- Class 1 terrain/trail hiking
- Class 2 terrain/pass/x-country
- Class 3 terrain/pass/x-country
- River crossings
- Snow travel/Glacier crossings
What is your main interest?
- Big Mountain scenery
How many days/nights is your trip, not including travel to trailhead?
How many miles did you want to do a day, any layovers?
Do you have a route logistics preference: loop, out and back, point to point (which may require 2 vehicles or hitchhiking)?
Is there a particular area in the Sierra that your most interested in (Yosemite, SEKI western sierra start or eastern start ect.)?
Will you be hiking with a dog?
Please take the time to use the "search function" before requesting information there are many different subjects, and area's that have all ready have been covered before.
Also, please start your own threads instead of piggybacking on an existing thread.This will avoid any unnecessary confusion that may happen if the OP thinks that other members are posting suggestions to there original question, but are really posting answers to the piggy-backers question. This is especially important to keep in mind when it comes to trip requests, but should be really avoided in all cases.
If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!

And I'll add...PLEASE come back and POST A TRIP REPORT when you get back from your trip! We LOVE trip reports. Especially reports which include lots of fun details and lots of photos.
