Trail Reroutes
Trails were not rerouted.  The White trail begins at parking area P1.  The Blue Trail is a connector trail from the White Trail to connect with the RW Trail, which will connect you to the BW Trail if desired.  The option to use the dirt road (dam) is still there, and in high water is the better option to connect to those two trails.

trl re-routes
The wht trl was re-routed to leave the road earlier. The blue trl was also re-routed beginning at the point where the wht trl leaves the road - so it now skips the road at the southern end of the pond. This is on the current map as best I can read it.
