Bryson City is easy. You'll want to hit the Tsali Trails. There are 4 trails and they alternate 2 of the trails each day with the equestrian riders. (i.e. watch out for Horse poopy!)
The trails are a lot of fun, not too technical, but really fast and swoopy! (is that a word?)
Asheville is a different story. There are SO many trails there. My favorite is the Fish Hatchery trail which is toward the Brevard side of the park (vs the Ashville side). It's a pretty decent fire-road climb and sweet singletrack descent ending with a wide shallow (and refreshing) stream crossing.
The trails at North Mills river are pretty awesome as well.
If you're staying closer to Asheville, there are some killer trails (can't remember the names) but they're close to the Aubitorium (sp?) on the way to one of the campgrounds.
BTW, I'm jealous!!! Can I hide in the trunk, so I can come too?
