Yes, it was introduced in 3.1, and it's documented in pf.conf(5).
  If a packet matches a rule with a route option set, the packet filter
  will route the packet according to the type of route option.
    The fastroute option does a normal route lookup to find the next hop for
    the packet.
    The route-to option routes the packet to the specified interface with an
    optional address for the next hop.

I haven't used it for that purpose yet, but if you have the appropriate
routing table entry, it should work.
