Bethel would give you easier access to parts of the White Mountains National Forest which spans the Maine-New Hampshire border. In addition to some good hiking in the western Maine mountains, you'd be within easy driving distance of some great hikes in the White Mountains of New Hampshire as well as having easy access to Maine's Evans Notch and Grafton Notch State Park.
