Would help to have a start and end point rather than general locations.

If it is something you are doing now, it is not a good time to hit any of the passes in southwest Colorado.
But I couldn't drive through without hitting up Moab, even this time of year. There most trails are probably passable now as they don't get huge amounts of snow.
There is a great series of books by Funtreks, and they have a book on Moab along with a book on Arizona. I would rather hit up Moab, but a route further south could be fun.
There isn't much in southwest Colorado you can hit this time of year, but there are a few trails that may be do-able. You would need a trail that stays lower in elevation. Anything up high will be nothing but snow.Again, there is a Funtreks book on that.

Moab is the way to go... then Southeast through the 4 corners (Durango Cortez)... you can loop into Telluride if you want to see SNOW.

Set your Google maps to AVOID freeways if you really want less freeway.

Between Canon City & Cripple Creek there are a couple of really cool roads. Phantom Canyon is an old railroad now dirt & the shelf road kind of runs parallel to the phantom road to the west. Neither are difficult (depending on snow) but are really cool drives.

Highway of legends is also a cool paved route between La Vera & Trinidad. You can google them for more info. Beautiful drive and very cool around stonewall with the rocks shooting out of the ground. They’re are so many great drives in Colorado.

Also have the volcanos between Raton & Clayton in New Mexico. You can drive to the top of the Capulin Volcano for a fee (it’s a state park)

How far are you going into Oklahoma?
