Hey brother, I have a worksheet on my vendor page that shows how to, plus it lets you document everything for future reference. Also in my signature is one of the threads I did on chassis Understanding. It's the first one that talks about trail and shows the equation.

Created a spreadsheet to calculate "actual trail" as it relates to rake angle (makes a big difference) and tire size (also makes a big difference in trail).

Nice to have a reference, as we need to examine trail in when changing ride height (change in the rake) and changes in the front tire radius (measured from the ground up to center axle).

They have accurate digital angle finders on e-bay for $30. Measure with the bike on level ground.
