Rake & Trail

Could someone please offer a explanation to me on rake and trail and how those measurements impact the driving feel/performance of the bike. How is it that a bike with a numerically low rake can have a trail greater than a bike with a higher rake? Is there a point that trail becomes too short or too long?
