Walk breaks are even more important on long trail runs than on long pavement runs. Not only will the walks allow you to cope with trail hazards, at the end of a trail run your legs are going to be tired and less able to respond to uneven challenges. I hear from quite a few runners every year who tell me that they could have avoided falls, ankle injuries, and tree impact injuries if they had taken walk breaks more frequently.
