Nevermind!
Tracking is covered by the Perception skill.  There's a table --Find Tracks-- with DC's and everything.

Ugh, I felt like a noob immediately after I posted it, I was looking in Nature.  Been a while since I played lol.  Thanks though!
In 3.5 it was part of the Survival skill, and since most of 3.5's Survival skill was subsumed by 4e's Nature skill it was intuitive to look there.

Now, if you never played 3.5 you have no excuse.

The few times I've seen tracking in 4e has been part of a skill challenge, so folks used perception, nature, and even insight ("knowing what I do of human nature, which direction do I think the bandits would have gone..."). And one time arcana as well, to sense the magical energies left by the creatures we were following.
