Trail running suggestions around Asheville, NC?

My wife and I are moving to Asheville in a month.  Although I've not been running much the past year, i'm excited to get back into trails.  Any suggestions on short 2-3 milers?  Back when we lived in Nashville, I'd run 2-5 mile trails a couple of times a week.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

    I hike and sometimes run the Catawba Falls trail.  It is, I believe, owned by the Conservancy now.  However, this is in McDowell County where I live.  It has a decent but not too strenuous incline going up and the trail is usually pretty clear because a lot of people hike it, especially with their dogs.  There are several little creeks and streams that you will pass over as well.  I work in Buncombe County but don't live there anymore and wasn't running yet when I did live there.  I'd be interested to read what trails others run in Buncombe, as I may want to try something new.  I like Catawba Falls for running and hiking, but its getting a little "same old" for me because I do it at least several times a month.
