As of 2010, Eagle County’s population was 52,197. The town of Eagle is the county seat, but Edwards is the largest community. Named for the Eagle River that runs through it, Eagle County was formed by the Colorado legislature in 1883 from sections of Summit County.
Rich with trails, byways, and protected forests and wilderness areas, much of Eagle County is comprised of White River National Forest. The Bureau of Land Management oversees much of the remainder of the land.
