Tracking is following a human scent....the footsteps where someone has walked.
Trailing is different that Tracking....following a scented dummy that has been dragged...used for hunting dogs...following a downed bird for example.
To see if the dog is really following the trail, the tracks for both Tracking and Trailing are marked at various spots/turns, etc.
In both, the dog often works downwind/to the side of the laid track.
