Distance correction needed

Yesterday I bagged Round Top Peak and both Sisters. I'm not sure how to submit a suggested change, but I would respectfully dispute the distance given (4 mi. RT) in the chart for getting there. From Woods Lake both the trail signs and my GPS put Round Top Lake at 2.5 miles. That would be a 5 mile round trip without climbing any peaks. If you climb the Sisters I would add on approximately 1/2 mile to the saddle between Round Top and the East Sister and 1/8 mile to climb to the top of the first Sister. It's considered another 1/4 mile to the West Sister. So that's adding a minimum of 1 and 1/2 miles to the trip and makes a total of 6.5 to 7 miles round trip if you go straight back on the Woods Lake Trail. However, a nice way to get back to the trailhead is the Woods Lake Loop by going down to Winnemuca Lake (1 mile) and then the 2 miles back to the Woods Lake trailhead. That would be about a 7.5 mile round trip.
