...would like to latch onto a group ride or maybe a local out there that wouldn't mind showing two of us around a couple of the more awesome routes (streams/waterfalls/awesome views etcs). Prefer to keep as much of it single track as possible.

We'll be staying just outside of Asheville (about halfway between Asheville and Black Mountain) from July 10th to the 12th and would likely be mainly riding in the morning (although that's not set in stone). Don't mind driving a ways to hit something good.

Our pace would probably be 7-9MPH (give or take), 25-30 miles would probably be our limit.
