These words have many meanings.
Tracks can be "pegadas". I followed the tracks of the bear through the woods.
Traces refer to small amounts. I found traces of the bear in the woods. (I found a pawprint, leaves that had been moved, a bit of fur on a log, broken twigs, etc.)
A track can be a "trilha", but "path" or "trail" is more common. In older history books you will find the word "trace" meaning path or trail. As I recall, one path was called "The Natchez Trace".
