I usually think of “trackless wilderness” being uninhabited, and away from any steady human traffic that would leave tracks. My husband mentioned that he had heard the phrase “tractless wilderness”, and I do see it used frequently, and sometimes it does seem to be used to mean an unsurveyed area rather than a roadless one.
An appropriate substitution. Good eggcorn.
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
