The route of the Great Victorian Rail Trail now runs to the south of the station site.  It passes through the former cattle yard which is a rectangular area.  Around the edges one can see some mortared stone work by way of shoring.  This area, which is surrounded by a buffer of trees, including Monterey pines, is currently used for bulk storage of aggregate for the rail trail.

Molesworth has a pleasant rest area for rail trail users and it is a short stroll to the small township of Molesworth for refreshments.

The station opened and closed with the line. The site boasted a large cattle yard. This was excavated from rock into the hillside.  West of the cattle yard is a timber buffer stop. The site of the station is still marked by a remnant orchard complete with jonquils patch, Monterey pines, and a concrete pad foundation. Whilst some bolts remain, this foundation has broken up. It is next to the edge of the former platform.
