I hardly think anyone travels to Mykonos to hike, here are totally different pleasures that attracts. The landscape is not particularly inviting: it's flat and barren, and there are very few sights or interesting villages outside of Mykonos Town. The highest mountain Profitis Ilias Anomeritis is only 341 meters high. The well-known German hiker Dieter Graf has published many hiking books, but no one about Mykonos. It says something about how uninteresting Mykonos is out of a hiking point of view. Instead of hiking between high mountains and deep valleys you can walk between the beaches, or among the cosy alleys of Chora.

However there is a hiking map of Mykonos. It is published by the Greek cartographic company Terrain maps, also known as Skai Maps. The scale is 1:25 000 and the map can be purchased in Mykonos. The map can of course be used even if you do not hike, for example if you rent a car or scooter, or if you are going to find the right alleys in the Mykonos Town. The map also includes the neighbouring island of Delos.
