Not sure its going to be "on your way" but I would suggest Big Bear Mountain trails. There are tons depending on your skill level. The trails are about 45 minutes away.

Watch yours if you are driving them in, last year they had police posted at he entrance handing out tickets for things like mud flaps, wide tires, and no covers on off road lights.

There are online trial guides you can look up that will give you trails in every state and pick some that are on your route.

Some build info here:

Would snow be an issue?

It may be and you want to go prepared because the weather can change quite fast in the mountains.

Logandale trails are fun... an hour North of Las Vegas off of the I-15.
...then there's the Mojave trail between Laughlin and Barstow. No hard 4 wheeling but a lot of historical desert trail and solitude.

There is very little snow up there currently but they DO get snow. Even if there is snow the local guys blaze the trail so it will be accessible in either case.

I think at this point we will only wheel the hammers in socal as I have us set for a stop in Mesa Tx, then table mesa in az, then hammers, then to St. George, Colorado, and ending at southern Missouri off road ranch. not sure if we will wheel any in Colorado but the captain wants to make a legal purchase there. maybe we will find a spot to do something on trails or rocks for 5 hours or so, then head into Missouri.
