Jones Road Access (looking downstream) is informal and unmaintained.  It is used primarily by fishermen.  Take the Eagle exit (Exit 84) from I-96 and go south to Grand River Hwy (about 0.4 mile).  Go west on W Grand River Hwy about a mile and a half to Benton Road/Jones Road.  Take Benton Road/Jones Road a little less than 1.5 miles to the river.
