Anyone know what the trails are like right now?
Have you ever wanted to know what the current trail conditions were in Eagle? How about somewhere up valley or on the Front Range? There's an app for that! If you haven't heard of Trailforks, you should head over to their website and check it out - https://www.trailforks.com/ .
